Imagine paying for dinner only one night a week. Imagine eating with your friends and neighbors five nights a week. Food-4-All is a meal share started among the members of Old North Abbey in 2010. People from both the church and the neighborhood are involved.

Here’s how it works: Each week, anyone who wants to opts in. Usually, 20-25 people are involved. Families are paired up and designated a day to cook at the beginning of the week. On Monday, two families cook a meal together that is sufficient to feed everyone (i.e. 25 people if that’s how many are involved that week). Then, everyone else will show up to receive their portion of food. Then the process repeats with two new families each night of the week.

Food-4-All is a wonderful way to save time and money and get to know your neighbors.
