Volunteers come together to prepare Christmas lunch for Statesboros Rebeccas Cafe
Rebecca Cafe
Volunteers from church groups, Georgia Southern University and the community joined efforts to provide a special Christmas lunch on Dec. 23 at Rebecca's Caf, housed in the Food Bank at the old Julia P. Bryant School. Rebecca's Caf serves lunch every Tuesday and Thursday to anyone who shows up at noon with no proof of eligibility required. - photo by Special
At a time when many in our community and nation are divided by skin color, size of bank account and beliefs or unbelief, one place melded hearts and joined hands the week of Christmas to feed families and individuals in need. A conglomeration of volunteers as varied and unique as the guests who came to eat began preparing the special meal several days in advance of the Dec. 23 lunch. Volunteers from Trinity Episcopal Church, Magnolia Baptist Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Johnson Grove Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Statesboro, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Statesboro, Mount Zion AME Church, First Presbyterian Church, Greater Bethel AME Church, St. Matthew's Catholic Church, Believers Church, Georgia Southern University Eagle Dining Services and other community volunteers united at Rebecca's Café for one cause - to serve Christmas lunch.
