Food Ministries

Funeral Luncheons

After consultation with the family, Bethlehem volunteers provide side dishes and salads for a community meal after a funeral service. These home cooked meals provide a little comfort on a day often filled with sorrow and provide a little community time for friends and family to remember their loved one. Volunteer to drop off a side dish or salad by completing the volunteer form.

Golden Diner Program (Port-a-lunch)
