Community First Meals 
Every Thursday, members of Austin communities provide hot, homemade meals to the residents of COMMUNITY FIRST! VILLAGE – a tiny home/RV village housing formerly homeless persons.  We’d love to have Austin Ridge women commit to providing food and/or serving one Thursday a month.  Not only is the food often very needed by the residents, but the knowledge that someone cared enough to prepare a home-cooked meal and the opportunity to sit and eat in fellowship with their neighbors and the volunteers who serve.  God has blessed us with this amazing opportunity to be a part of the Community First family.  

If you would like to either provide food (you will have the opportunity each month to sign up for either a main dish, side dish, fruit/salad, or dessert for 20 people) or to attend and serve dinner at 6-7:30pm, please email min.werkheiser@gmail.com to be added to the information email.
