The Cowichan Lake Baptist Church is set to host a free community dinner, Saturday, September 10.

“The dinner is planned as an outreach to the community,” organizer Ken Jack wrote in an e-mail to the Gazette.

“By the middle of the month, many people on fixed incomes are reaching the end of their finances.”

“We want to reach out to the community and help out by providing at least one filling meal a month at a tough time, before government cheques arrive.”

The church plans on holding these dinners for the next three to four months to gauge the community response and need.

The September 10 meal will begin at 6 p.m., with a serving of spaghetti and meat sauce, a variety of salads, and dessert.

The movie The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will be screened afterwards for those interested.
