Community Meals through the Lancaster County Council of Churches:

The Lancaster County Council of Churches provides a hot meal every night of the week (Monday-Friday) at a location within Lancaster City.  Several city congregations host the sites for these meals.  These host churches then arrange for another city congregation/churches to supply, prepare, and serve the meal.
