In need of a hot meal in Bonney Lake?
Monica Gaub, coordinator at the Prairie Ridge Community Coalition, offered a reminder earlier this month that there are free community dinners being held on Wednesdays at the Prairie Ridge Rec Hall (14205 215th Ave. E, Bonney Lake, WA, 98391) that are open to everyone.
Currently, dinners are consistently offered on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. The first Wednesday dinner is sponsored by Room At Our Table and has a rotating menu. The third Wednesday dinner is sponsored by the Foothills United Methodist Church and features lasagna.
Dinner service starts at 6 p.m. and usually ends by 6:45 p.m. A family-friendly activity, like family games, bingo, arts & crafts, karaoke, or a short movie, starts at 6:45 p.m. and ends around 7:30 p.m. The dinner events and activities are entirely volunteer-driven and supported by sponsors and donors. Between 50 and 110 people attend each dinner - averaging around 75 people.
The program is considered a community feeding program and is the only hot dinner site in Bonney Lake.
Organizers continue to seek partners who are interested in providing a dinner once a month, quarterly, semi-annually, or even once a year. If you'd like more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
