New Community Meal Program in LeRoy
Written by Dan Fischer on January 31, 2018
It’s been two years since Grace’s Kitchen closed in LeRoy, ending its free community meal service.
Now, the LeRoy Rotary Club, the Masons and other organizations want to re-start the program.
LeRoy Rotarian Tracy Ford said the need is real:
Grace’s Kitchen operated for five years and served 100 to 125 people regularly, about 70 percent of those individuals were elderly.
Much of the food will be provided by Foodlink. Ford said local restaurants said they will assist with meals.
Organizers say the big need is for volunteers to prepare and serve the meals. They hope to begin serving by the end of March at the Masonic Hall on Bank Street in LeRoy.
