Volunteers from Saint Peter & Paul Church gathered at the Family Kitchen in Johnstown to prepare and serve a meal to the area’s hungry. Youth and adults gathered at the kitchen to clean, prepare tables, cook, serve, wash dishes, and clean up following the meal. The group of about twenty-one served 157 meals for lunch on Saturday, January 26. The effort is part of a charity called Saturday’s Kitchen, which is made up of area churches who have combined resources and volunteers to have the Family Kitchen open on Saturdays as well as during the week.
