For decades Christ the King has supported the ministry of Loaves & Fishes. It is a ministry that feeds people, regardless of their situation, because everybody deserves to meet their basic needs for food, dignity and respect. Through our Loaves & Fishes teams, scores of Christ the King members have volunteered at meal sites across the Twin Cities to prepare and serve meals.
We have also had a long practice of feeding people through our own Wednesday night community meals. Even when COVID hit, we continued feeding people every week from our church kitchen. We have averaged about 80 delicious and nutritious meals a week, served to-go for anyone who needs one.
Beginning with the New Year, we are teaming up with Loaves & Fishes in a new way, by becoming a meal site. This means we will be feeding people out of our church kitchen Monday-Friday, serving what we estimate to be about 800 meals a week out of our church doors. These meals will be served nightly from 5-6pm, beginning Monday, January 3rd, prepared by volunteers from around the cities and served to-go for anyone who needs one.
I am excited for this opportunity to expand our ministry of feeding. I am excited to deepen our relationship with such a meaningful ministry. I am excited about the ways that God is using Christ the King to meet the needs of our neighborhood.
