Our S.A.L.T. BOX Kitchen

The S.A.L.T. BOX kitchen serves free meals on the 2nd and last Sundays of each month from 4-6 pm for a free supper and plenty of fellowship. Our volunteers come from our church family,Canal Fulton Methodist church, Trinity Church, Canal Fulton Rotary, many individual student volunteers and places of business.We received donations from Grayce Ann's Restaurant, Mini Mart, NW Schools, Panera Breads, Chipotle, Pizza Hut, Bob Evans and several other businesses. This completes our fourth year of serving and we are all so proud of what work we have done in honor of our Lord Jesus Christ. We started out with 392 guests in 2009 and now serving up to 1400 meals a year. The Lord has provided us with the food and volunteers to feed his people and he continues to provide and bring those to us to serve. Please prayerfully consider volunteering your time for cooking or serving in this wonderful opportunity to do the Lords' work. If you are interested, please see Brenda White, Janet Suderow, Debby Messner or contact the church office.
