Third Anniversary for PCCK

Who remembers July 4, 2012 when — because TASK was closed for the holiday — we brought out the grills and cooked an Independence Day feast on the lawn.  So much progress since then.

“This could not have happened without the many volunteers from The Jewish Center, Princeton University, local churches, high schools, others in the community, as well as the support of the Princeton United Methodist Church,” says Larry Apperson, the long-time PUMC member who founded  Cornerstone Community Kitchen. “June 3rd was the 158th consecutive Wednesday, including the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas, that PCCK, in partnership with TASK, has served a free meal to those in the community.”

As we post this, today is another Wednesday, folks are getting ready to welcome today’s visitors, and you can bet the decor will be in red white and blue! Soon — there will be a free bus to take our guests home after dinner.
