The Our Daily Bread Dining Room of MOT will be hosting a "Pre-Launch Christmas Meal" on Monday, Dec. 17 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Dale United Methodist Church.
ODB has been incorporate in the state of Delaware since September 2011 and has been holding monthly free meal services for people in need throughout the Middletown, Odessa, and Townsend area.
In an effort to gain support, the group continues to seek fundraising opportunities through events, donations and grant opportunities. The mission of the program is to feed low-income families, individuals, children, the elderly and the impoverished in the Middletown, Odessa, and Townsend area with nutritious meals served at no cost and without discrimination.
During Monday's meal, the Dale U.M. Church will be distributing a limited number of coats and Christmas gifts to those in need.
The church is located at 143 E. Lake Street in Middletown.
Beginning in early 2013, Our Daily Bread Dining Room will have a free meal offered the first and third Monday of every month from noon to 2 p.m. The group's goal is to provide a free meal Monday through Friday of each week.
The group members would like to thank all of the sponsors and contributors who have put forth much effort in helping them reach their initial goal.
