Soup lunch started several decades ago as a way to serve a low cost, quality meal to people of the community. It is held the second Thursday of each month from September to May. It is also the main fund-raiser for the United Methodist Women’s group at Amherst UMC. Monies raised go to local missions such as the Amherst Food Pantry, St. Elizabeth Overnight Shelter, and Blessings House for children of families in crisis.
Looking for a way to help? Volunteers serve meals, set and clear tables, and wash dishes.
Others donate food items and bake pies.
Food preparations take place Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
Come help us feed the community!
