SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Alice's CUP food pantry assists any Middlesex County resident in need and also helps host weekly Wednesday evening suppers at St. Peter's Episcopal Church. The weekly dinners are free and offer area residents a home-cooked, hot meal as well as a welcoming atmosphere. However, the weekly dinners are in grave need of volunteers to help with picking up food donations from local restaurants and bakeries, cooking, meal preparations, table set up and clean up.
Students, adults, families, community organizations, area Scouts and other groups are welcome to assist in Wednesday Night Suppers. Supper typically begins at 6 p.m. Interested volunteers can contact Cathy Clark by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by text at 908-812-4631.
Volunteering is a way to help others, but it also comes with a few benefits for the volunteer. Lending a hand at Wednesday Night Suppers or taking a shift at the Alice's CUP food pantry is a great way to meet new people. Regular volunteering is good for both the body and mind, helping to relieve stress and anxiety. Volunteering provides a sense of purpose, can help improve self-confidence and even teaches valuable job skills.
Of course, volunteering also provides fulfillment and fun. St. Peter's Wednesday Night Suppers are known for their lively conversations around the dinner table.
St. Peter's Episcopal Church is located at 505 Main Street in Spotswood.
