A Place at the Table (APATT) 

is part of Trinity Cathedral’s Hunger Ministry, a Community Outreach program that serves food to anyone in need of a hot meal every Sunday. Volunteers gather in rotations of 6/7 different teams. The meals are prepared and delivered to us from Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries (LMM). The assembled volunteers serve the food and assist in the clean up afterward. Lunch is served from 12-1 p.m. in Cathedral Hall, and volunteers are encouraged to come at 11:30 a.m. to prepare for serving. Learn more.
