LEWISBURG W.Va. (WVDN) – Over the weekend, The Edgewood Presbyterian Church blessed Greenbrier County residents with a delicious pre-Thanksgiving meal. Cars lined a sunny Brush Road as families waited to receive their boxed dinners.
Church members guided traffic and offered sales of homemade apple butter while in line.
The dinner consisted of slow-roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, green beans and a roll with butter. The dessert was a spice cake with whipped cream. They also gave away small bags of locally sourced potatoes.
The church has humbly fed the hungry for many years. Over 10,000 meals have been homemade and delivered to shut-ins, the elderly and anyone expressing a need for a meal since COVID-19 shut down America nearly three years ago. Their fellowship meals first stayed within the church walls and with its members, until the thought of sharing a message and a meal with the community was hatched. Between 500-600 meals have been served regularly each month.
Lots of happy faces and busy folks were working hard to serve the lines of people. If you would like a regular meal delivered or have a family member who cannot get out, just call the church at 304-645-6536 and someone will help set up delivery or give more information on pick-up.
The church is located at 162 Harper Road, Lewisburg WV. Dec. 16 is the next “Saturday of Service” meal available from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Call for details for delivery.
