A sneak peak of last night’s Roast Turkey Dinner... #communitysupper
Mt. Calvary Community Supper of Acton is committed to serving those deserving the most basic of needs: a nutritious meal and a sense of belonging. All are welcome every Wednesday from 5:00-6:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall
On opening day, April 11, 2012, Mt. Calvary Community Supper became the only active community supper in Acton. In 1984 the first community supper of Acton was formed. Though the location and name have changed throughout the years, and there was a year of non-operation, the mission has remained the same - to alleviate hunger and social isolation. Now beginning its 6th year in operation, Mt. Calvary Commnunity Supper has 60 rotating volunteers with no paid staff. As of April 2017 we have served over 20,000 free meals to neighbors in Acton and surrounding towns. We are dedicated to welcoming all in need of a nutritious meal and a sense of belonging and treat each guest with respect and dignity. All are welcome every Wednesday evening at the Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church. Dinner is served from 5 PM to 6PM.
Mission: Mt. Calvary Community Supper of Acton strives to alleviate hunger and social isolation for our neighbors in need of a nutritious meal and sense of belonging.

For many years Brek Peterson has volunteered at our Supper as a pots and pans man. In addition, for the past year he has been providing us with delicious roast beef and turkey that have delighted our guests Yesterday we were invited to join Brek in his new venture. He and his wife are officially opening the Which Wich Superior Sandwich Shop at 324 Newbury Street in Boston. Can not say enough about how wonderful the food is and how great a concept this shop has. You can choose a specialty sandwich or create your own sandwich or salad from scratch. Just pick a protein or veggie along with bread option and begin to build by filling out one of the numbered cards.(I tried to capture the options on the hanging boards to better explain.) And the shakes are fabulous. We were so impressed that I just wanted to share this great dining opportunity if you happen to be in town and wish a bite to eat. The official opening is tomorrow - Monday May 13th and it is bound to be hopping. To Brek, thank you for a great experience. You truly have a winner!!
Over 100 dinners served!👏👏

Many thanks to Lynne, Jim, Jim and Carla, and Peggy who joined us from St. Matthew's Methodist Church of Acton to serve our meal on the 24th. We are always so grateful to our sponsors who help us to continue to serve all who join us each week at Supper. St. Matthew's generous sponsorship was greatly appreciated. Everyone enjoyed our favorite, spaghetti and meatballs, that were prepared by Pam Reid, Demetra Bristol, Susan Osche. Somehow they always manage to create the most delicious meat sauce. Thank you to All for making our guests feel so welcomed and well fed.
We are all looking forward to the true beginning of Spring and warmer temperatures to go with it. Enjoy the beauty of the season as Mother Nature comes alive.

Lets hope this will begin the greening of our surroundings. To ABUW, we are so grateful for your continued support that enables all of our guests to join us as a family every Wednesday evening for sustenance and friendship.
It was a night of Green last night. Volunteers and guests, alike, celebrated a traditional Irish Dinner with Corn Beef and cabbage - topped off by Jen's delicious green pistachio cake. Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Acton Boxborough who sponsored our meal and were represented by Sue, Mike and MaryAnne. What a terrific team. With a wide array of footwear to keep pace with serving over 90 guests, they proved up to the challenge. A huge shout out to Carol who arrived in the kitchen at 9am to make certain the corned beef was properly cooked. We were so happy to have the return of our wonderful leader, Mike Tobia in the kitchen. Donning their leprechaun hats Bethany, Mike and James brought laughter to the kitchen while Bonnie, Bill and the girls from Concord carried on the spirit of the night into Fellowship Hall.
On March 6th, all the guests at Mt. Calvary Community Supper of Acton were treated to a special dinner cooked and served by the dedicated family and friends of “One Angel Foundation.” Established by Joy and Chip Agule in the memory of their daughter Jenna who tragically died at the age of 22 in a skiing accident in 2011, the Foundation strives to continue Jenna’s devotion to helping others. I encourage everyone to look up this foundation on line to learn of the life and passions that Jenna possessed. She had such a positive impact on so many though she left all too soon.
I would like to share with you a few words from a final journal entry Jenna penned 2 days prior to her death. Titled: Blessed - January 2011
“ Tomorrow is my goal. To wake up inspired just because the sun is shining and live with gratitude every moment for everything I have been given. I hope to be mindful, prayerful and peaceful and radiant, this to those around me.”
Thank you, Joy and Chip and the One Angel Foundation team, for sharing Jenna’s life with all of us at Mt Calvary Community Supper of Acton. Through you and the memory of Jenna’s devotion to others, we will strive to bring hope and a smile to the faces of our guests at Supper every Wednesday night.
This week's meal was sponsored by Nuvera Fuel Cells LLC of Billerica. Thank you so much. We are so grateful to Alfreda Kovach, our church member who was instrumental in this generous donation. Without the support and kindness from others, it would be challenging for us to serve all of our guests each evening.
Our meal was a favorite of spaghetti and meatball with Pam Reid's homemade split pea soup. SOOO good. But in addition to dinner, all guests were treated to beautiful soup jars that were lovingly created by members of UCCC of Boxborough. Each of the 4 varieties of jars contained all the ingredients and spices to make homemade soup, Thank you to Laura and Christine for personally handing them out and to Dena and the team of UCCCB church members who packed the jars.
As always, the clean up crew made us spotless at the end of the night. Thank heavens Collin enjoys helping out even if is means hauling all the trash!! With today we welcome March and warmth. 😎
Every week before supper we package up meals for those who are unable to join us due to illness or other circumstances. These meals are delivered by Neighbor Brigade, a wonderful organization that connects neighbors to others in our community in times of need. This week with the financial support of Project Bread our cook teams made homemade mac n'cheese, baked ham & veggies along with a hearty turkey rice soup. This was all sent home with fresh bread and dessert so that those who cannot join supper in Fellowship Hall every Wednesday night feel a bit of our fellowship. All are welcome to join supper at 5pm Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church - Acton, MA. Thank you Project Bread and The Neighbor Brigade for your support!
Tomorrow's baked ham & mac n'cheese supper is being sponsored by Project Bread.

Thank you to the West Acton Baptist Church for sponsoring and serving our meal this week. Our jovial cook team prepared a delicious roast beef dinner - compliments to Brek for the tender meat. We welcomed Clarice as she joined the students who prepare our dining hall and desserts every night. Many hands make light work when setting up for 100 guests each night. Though we may be missing a few neighbors on any given night we always are ready to provide 100 meals to all who come. The WABC serving team of Ruth, Zelda, Bob, Jim, Delores and Linda were greatly appreciated as they welcomed our guests and smoothly carried soup, roast beef dinners and then dessert to all. Once our meal comes to an end there is an entirely new crew who comes in each week to tidy us up. This week April, Collin, Sarah, Allie, Amy and Shelley left our Fellowship Hall spotless. Many thanks to each and every one of you for dedicating your self to our guests.
Remember that this Wednesday we will celebrate "Bring a Friend" night. On the first Wednesday of each month we recognize new guests with a treat. Come enjoy a delicious Roast Beef dinner with a big helping of friendship. Looking forward to seeing you All.
Our Jan. 30th supper featured made-to-order Breakfast for Dinner of delicious cheesy scrambled eggs, homemade potato pancakes and fresh fruit sponsored by Congregation Beth Elohim.

Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Acton Boxborough for sponsoring and serving our dinner last night. Brek Peterson of Which "Wich provided delicious roast turkey while our Supper volunteers cooked all the "fix-ins." The tables were set with vibrant flowers that matched the psychedelic cake - which our students volunteers enjoyed preparing.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL! We began 2019 with a wonderful Roast Pork Dinner sponsored, prepared and served by St. John Lutheran Church from Sudbury. The cook team of Dennis, Earl, Larry, Betty and Robin were all chopping, rubbing and emulsifying in the kitchen by 1:30pm to insure that pork loin, roasted vegetables and lentil soup were steaming hot by 4:45pm. Our dedicated volunteers Bob, Paula, Rhett, and Jack stepped right in and our wonderful students, Alice, Rachel, Cate, Ancy, and Gracia, arrived right after school to prep desserts that were home baked by members of St John. Our former student, Ben, spent time from his winter collage break to return to lend a hand with Carol Lake. Karen, Maddie, and Savvy set their home made stovepipe decorations on the table so the guests had a festive setting to dine on .We were one big happy family as the servers, Dianne, Angie, Mary, Amy, Jen, Paul, and Barbara donned their aprons and lovely gloves to provide each guest with a delicious meal and much friendship. It was a beautiful night to begin a new year. Thank you to Pastor Don and the entire team from St. John Lutheran Church for sharing yourselves with our guests.
