Cornerstone Community Kitchen serves free dinners every Wednesday, in partnership with the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, at the corner of Nassau and Vandeventer Streets, just inside the doors of Princeton United Methodist Church. Everyone is welcome, no questions asked. From 5 to 6:30 p.m. volunteers serve plates heaped high with a main dish, vegetables, salad, fresh fruit, and dessert — with plenty of take-home bagels available. Cornerstone Kitchen is well into its second year of “never miss a Wednesday.”
Lots of people help serve this abundance, and here are three examples — one from a congregation, one from a small business, one from an individual.
Jeannette Timmons of The Jewish Center of Princeton volunteers weekly. Now that the Methodist church kitchen is undergoing renovation, the “prep” for the fresh veggies and salads is being done at the Jewish Center. Jeannette Timmons, a weekly volunteer, wrote this account of how the gift of a stove has warmed the friendship ties between the two congregations.
Evan and Maria Blomgren, of the Rocky Hill Inn , furnished the main course last Wednesday. Owner and chef at the Rockh Hill Tavern, Evan prepared delicious chicken masala, roasted potatoes, and asparagus and peppers. Panera Bread and the Bagel Hole regularly donate baked goods, and Zorba’s Brother has also donated a meal. More donors welcome!
Maurice Galimidi, of Allegra Printing, made a generous donation to CCK, and he tells why:
Thank you, everybody.
