Under the auspices of the Park Ridge Ministerial Association, A hot meal is provided by one of 19 participating congregations or civic organizations. The organization brings food for 100 people and approximately 12 volunteers to serve the guests and to clean up after the supper. The guests are provided with take home contains for any remaining food.
In addition to taking its turn at preparing and serving the meals, over 70 St. Luke’s members provide the administration, hosts and hostesses, musical entertainment, table decorations, publicity, supplies and maintenance for the program.
Whole Foods Market gives loaves of bread for the guests to take home and the South Park Cleaners launders all of the table clothes.
During the 2013-2014 season, over 2,000 meals were served in a festive and welcoming atmosphere. Thank you St. Luke’s volunteers.
