What is S.O.M.E.?
Westmoreland has had a long-standing commitment to S.O.M.E. (So Others May Eat). Originally a soup kitchen, it has, in the last thirty years, evolved into a comprehensive social services agency addressing the emergency and rehabilitative needs of the homeless and most needy and vulnerable of the city. Over 900 nutritious meals are served each day in an atmosphere of caring. The need is great!
Our Commitment and Your Opportunity
We have been providing breakfast foods for the first Thursday of each month, for over 20 years. We are currently providing a lunch casserole, all of us making the same recipe (at S.O.M.E.'s request). Everything else, including the delivery schedule, remains the same. Items may be brought to church any day of the month. Casserole pans and copies of the recipe are available on the "What's Happening" table. Casseroles should be tightly covered with foil. (Please do not use plastic wrap as casseroles go from freezer to oven without being uncovered.) Label your casserole for S.O.M.E. If you are unable to shop and assemble a casserole, S.O.M.E. still accepts cereal and juice (plastic bottles or cans). Place those labeled items on the counter in the kitchen. Thank you! The recipients of your contributions of food are deeply grateful for your generosity.
Additional drivers are needed to deliver the casseroles. If you can help, please contact the Church office at (301) 229-7766.
