Community Dining Room

  Formally established on March 30, 2009, this is a partnership of St. Luke’s-San Lucas Church and four Mystic Valley Deanery congregations: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Lynnfield; Grace Episcopal Church, Medford, Trinity Episcopal Church, Melrose, and Epiphany Church, Winchester.

The Community Dining Room, which began operations on May 31, 2009, is staffed entirely by volunteers from the partner churches, and opens every Saturday from 9 am to 12 noon. Warm, nutritious breakfast and lunch are served to anyone who comes in, free of charge.

The sources of the food we serve are the Greater Boston Food Bank and wholesale purchases. We are funded through grants and private and corporate gifts. Donations are much needed and welcome!
