Area churches in Flagler County host a weekly Community Dinner.


  • Have you ever wondered where your next meal might be coming from? 
  • Ever struggled with a budget that barely covers your rent or mortgage?
  • Felt overwhelmed with life’s challenges and longed for someone to just share a meal and some conversation? 

Thankfully, several area churches in Flagler County host a weekly Community Dinner to provide food, fellowship, and comfort to those in need.  At each dinner, guests are welcomed with smiles and open arms, and friendships are easily formed amongst the “regulars,” who hold a common bond. 

Sometimes local businesses and members of the community donate clothing, food, and toiletries for distribution at the dinner.  The Sheltering Tree is available on the first Saturday of each month at the Palm Coast United Methodist Church at 4:00 PM, prior to their Community Dinner.

These Free Community Dinners are currently supported by:
