A hot meal and a bag of groceries are what draw many people to the LEC for the first time. Individuals and families arrive at the LEC, are offered a hot meal and are given the opportunity to attend a class of their choice. Once a week clients are able to take home a bag of supplemental groceries. Breakfast is served Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to 9:50 a.m.
Lunch is served on Saturdays at 11 a.m.. The lunch program is made possible through the members of four area churches offering to donate their time and talent to prepare and serve lunch on a rotating basis.
Donated grocery items from sources such as GFS (Gordon Food Service), Meijer, Entenmann’s Bakery, Bob Evans and local non-perishable food drives by area churches, businesses, and the annual Boy Scouts® Scouting for Food drive are separated and properly stored at the LEC. Bulk items are used to prepare hot meals at the center while family and individual portions are distributed in the weekly grocery bags.
