Quote of the Week:
Volunteers are not paid -- not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless!
We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.
The mission of the Shared Table Free Community Meals, Inc. is to open its doors in the spirit of community outreach and hospitality to provide a weekly free and nutritious meal for those who are food insecure in the Village of McFarland and surrounding township. A second goal is to reach out to seniors and other area residents who may be in need of companionship and who would enjoy friendship and fellowship around the dinner table.
Meals build community as they are prepared and served in a spirit of cooperation by groups from school, church, civic, and professional organizations. Volunteers share the table with those in attendance to meet and greet in the name of friendship and love.
People from all walks of life are united in their desire to freely serve others as they come to know their neighbors.
