United Presbyterian Church hosts unique hot dish giveaway

Updated: August 09, 2020 10:51 PM

Most Mid-Westerners have tried their fair share of hot dishes, but on Sunday, a unique hot dish was given out to people outside United Presbyterian Church.


That hot dish was chow mein hot dish.

Like in past hot dish giveaways, organizers said the goal was to feed members of the community amid COVID-19.

“When COVID hit, the first words out of one of our staff member’s mouths were: ‘How are people going to eat?’ ‘How are people going to take care of themselves when mass unemployment hits?’ Pastor Brett Foote at United Presbyterian Church said.

From here, Foote said their congregation decided to start making hot dishes to help out and it has turned into a weekly thing.

“We've done everything from a tater tot hot dish to a spaghetti and meat ball hot dish to like a baked mac and cheese hot dish,” Foote said.

The group prepares about 75 meals per giveaway.

Giveaways typically take place on Sunday’s, but more information about exact dates and times can be found on the United Presbyterian Church’s Facebook page.
