Free community dinner held at Nappannee church


Dozens of people came out to a Nappanee Church Thursday for a free meal.

Nappanne Church of the Brethren hosted the inaugural event--with help from Elkhart's only homeless shelter-- Faith Mission.

Kitchen workers from Faith Mission made all of the food for the community supper.

Organizers of the event say that the event is for everyone.

Byrl Shaver is the pastor of Nappanee Church of the Brethren. He says, "This is really just a free, community, walk-in meal and anybody- it doesn't matter what your economic position is in the community. Anyone can come and take these meals."

The church will hold a free-community meal every Monday and Thursday from 5 to 6 pm.

They are also hoping to eventually make it a 5 - day a week program.
