The Bristol Lodge Ministry Team coordinates our efforts on behalf of the clients of a Waltham soup kitchen. For over 25 years, we have been providing a monthly meal (currently on the third Monday of every month) for the clients of Bristol Lodge. We cook the meal in our church kitchen; volunteers deliver and serve it at the soup kitchen. In the process, we are striving to live our UU principles, affirming the worth and dignity of every person, promoting equity, and strengthening the social safety net. The Bristol Lodge Team is working to educate our congregation about the clients of the soup kitchen, and the reasons that our assistance is so desperately needed.
Please contact us if you would like to learn more or to help with cooking and delivering the monthly meal. The 2018-19 cooking dates are: September 16, October 14, November 18, December 16, January 20, February 17, March 17, April 14, and May 19. During summer months we cover the cost of monthly meals that Bristol Lodge provides to their guests.
