Food @ First Community Meals


Members of St. Thomas Aquinas Church cook and serve meals at First Christian Church, 611 Clark Avenue, just north of Ames City Hall.  STA Volunteers assist on the first and fourth Mondays of the month. One team cooks, prepares the meal and sets the tables from 3:00 to 5:45 pm; the second team serves and cleans up from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. STA Voluneers also serve on the second Saturday of each month, cooking and preparing the meal from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.  Menus are planned and meal preparation is supervised by a head cook. We just need your help. Please sign up on the sheet on the information table in the gathering space. If you have any questions, contact one of the planning committee members: Heather Will: 515-233-5795; Sharon Fenton: 515-292-3325 or Tom Budnik, Coordinator of Minitries at 515-292-3810.

Interested in becoming one of the head cooks?  Head cooks check the food stores ahead of time and plan the meal based upon what is available.  They coordinate the preparation shift and watch over the serving and clean-up shift when necessary. If this sounds like a challenge you would enjoy, contact Sharon and Tom Fenton: 515-292-3325 for more details.
