Community meals served up by Mtn. View Community Betterment

The Mountain View Community Betterment has been serving up free meals for the community for several years now. The meals take place on the third Tuesday of every month. The meals are always home cooked and are free to anyone who comes through the door.
The meals are by donation and a donation is not required. Vice President of the Mountain View Community Betterment Karen Gaddy explained, "The meals are not just one plate meals. We want everyone to eat until they are full."
 
All meals are provided by donations from community members and local businesses. If anyone would like to donate or sponsor a meal, they can speak to any member of the Mountain View Community Betterment.
 
Gaddy added that during the Community Meals they typicall serve between 50 to 90 people. The biggest night they had was during the Back-To-School Fair last year. "It's a great place to meet new people, socialize and have a good, home-cooked meal," Gaddy reflected. Gaddy told The News that the leftovers from this meal were donated to the CARE Ministry group.
 
The remainder of the year's menu is April 16-breakfast night; May 21-Mexican casserole; June 18-cookout of hamburger and hotdogs; July 16-pulled pork sandwiches; August 20-spaghetti night; September 17-fish fry; October 15-meatloaf; no meal in November; December 17-Christmas dinner. All meals begin at 4:30 p.m. and are served until the food runs out.
