FUMCB provides support to Catherine’s House throughout the year in various ways but most specifically through providing a meal for the residents twice a month. You are invited to join this body in caring for our neighbors who are actively involved in rebuilding their lives after extreme hardship. The meal you prepare can be homemade or store bought. The meal is dropped off at 5:30 in disposable containers freeing you to leave within minutes of dropping off the meal. Your meal can also be delivered directly to Catherine’s House by a restaurant delivery service, You can find out all the details about the meal and choose a date to commit to serve by clicking HERE.
