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 2017-18 cooking dates are: September 17, October 15, November 19, December 17, January 14, February 18, March 18, April 15, and May 20. During summer months we cover the cost of monthly meals that Bristol Lodge provides to their guests.
