Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church volunteers are ready to serve diners at takeout drive-through community meal. The next one is Friday, Oct. 29, 2021.

Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church (ORUUC) Stone Soup ministry will kick off the new year by serving homemade Santa Fe chili, cornbread and a cooki, along with fresh fruit for the Jan. 28 final Friday of the month Free Community Meal.

The takeout only meals will be available from 5to 6 p.m., or until supplies run out. ORUUC is located at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike, close to traffic light no. 2, in Oak Ridge. Everyone is welcome.

In order to practice social distancing and safety, meals may be picked up by driving through the parking lot to the front of the church where volunteers will deliver the meals to your cars. Some non-perishable groceries will be available to anyone in need.

“It has been a great pleasure to have been able to continue to provide a final Friday of the month meal during the pandemic. Every month our dedicated volunteers along with our community partners, the Jewish Congregation of Oak Ridge and Kroger Marketplace, who together for years have supported our Stone Soup ministry, met the challenge to make sure that we never missed having food available for our free community meal. We look forward to serving the community in 2022 and wish everyone a safe and happy new year,” coordinator Jinx Watson stated in a news release.

For more information, call the ORUUC office at (865) 483-6761.
