Free meal brings volunteers together from mutliple faiths

The Logan Tabernacle Christmas concert series begins Tuesday, December 9 and continues through December 21 and once again the program is sponsored by Cache Community Connections. That’s a program formed just after the terror acts of 2001 when local government and religious leaders came together to form an inter-faith group with the goal of uniting the people of Cache Valley.

Another project sponsored by Cache Community Connections is called “Loaves and Fishes” where a free meal is served the first and third Saturdays of every month at Logan’s First Presbyterian Church. Committee member Sharon West said Saturday’s Loaves and Fishes meal welcomed people from various walks of life and from various religions.

“The food is sponsored by the LDS Bishop’s Storehouse and the Cache Community Food Pantry and some donations,” West explained. “We have different organizations, different churches, different wards come and prepare the meal.

“They do all the work for it. It’s all volunteer. It’s a great way to get to know people, to just come get some food and sit down and talk to someone you’ve never met before.”

There were some surprises for the children and most of the time there was also some performers.
