Additional information

First Church takes on 4 additional weekly meals to help address emergency needs. For several weeks, the First Church Shelter and Friday Café have been receiving pre-packaged restaurant meals purchased by the City of Cambridge. Beginning this week, our food ministry will expand yet again, as First Church hosts 4 additional grab-and-go meals to help close gaps created by the suspension of many community meals in Cambridge.

To-go meals will be served at the Tower Room door from 5:30–9:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.
