Beginning September 9, several Portland-area churches will sponsor the community-wide Monday Night Meal program at First Congregational Church, 421 E. Bridge St. in Portland from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.


Now in its 13th year, the popular program occurs each Monday through May 18 to offer a nutritious meal in a social setting. New this year is a “Grab and Go” feature, allowing busy patrons to pick up their meal and take it with them.


Meal delivery is also available for local shut-ins by calling the church office at (517) 647-6441 on Mondays before 1:30 pm.


There is no charge for the meals; however, free-will donations are accepted. Following the meal, a worship service led by First Congregational’s Rev. April Barrett is held in the church sanctuary.


Local churches rotate to provide the food, volunteer cooks and servers.

1st Monday of the month—First Congregational Church

2nd Monday—St. Patrick Catholic Church

3rd Monday—Portland United Methodist Church

4th Monday—Mt. Hope Community and First Baptist churches

Swede’s Restaurant in Mulliken provides soup each week. Other area businesses contributing to the program are New China Buffet and West Side Grocery.
