Celebrating Christmas With A Community Dinner

For residents who are less privileged, would like some company on Christmas day or simply want to share the holiday spirit with the community, holiday dinners at Faith Living Church and Bread for Life offer opportunities.

When you don’t have anyone to share the holiday with, Christmas can be a lonely time. For residents in Southington, however, local organizations including and are making sure everyone has a place to enjoy the company of others.

Local residents are invited to join in celebrating the holiday with friends, neighbors and others from throughout the region on Christmas day with dinners held at both locations. The dinners are open to the public and all are welcome, free of charge.

“It’s about making sure everyone has a great day,” said Sandra Feld, a member of the Gishrei Shalom Jewish Congregation, which will help host the Bread for Life dinner at the Masonic Lodge, 76 Main St.

Eldon Hafford, executive director of the Southington Bread for Life program, will help provide meals between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The program is designed to feed the needy, but with the holiday season, that can mean so many things, he said.

Down Route 10 in the Village of Plantsville, Faith Living Church at 20 Grove St. will also open their doors to the public as they offer a community dinner on Sunday afternoon.

“We will be offering a homemade Christmas dinner from 1 to 3 p.m. Everyone is invited, regardless of faith,” Loriann Danko said in an email this week.
