Crock Pot Thursday Community Meal

        Cancelled Until Further Notice

Crock Pot Thursday is part of an Ecumenical ministry that, through the combined effort of our 6 partner Christian churches in North Ridgeville,  provides a balanced meal for each of the last seven days of the week each month. Each church provides a meal for one day during that week.


St. Julie serves guests on the last Thursday of the month. All are welcome, no reservations needed!


These no-cost meals are provided for the unemployed, under-employed, elderly, lonely, those in need, and those struggling with disabilities which make cooking difficult. These meals also provide fellowship within our church community.


What can a Volunteer do?

Volunteer once, or frequently! Volunteers for this ministry sign up for a specific task for the current month - there is no long-term obligation, though many people volunteer each month. Tasks include:

  • Cook the menu items at home (using recipes provided) and deliver it in a Crock pot

  • Purchase and drop off food for other dishes to be assembled the day of the meal

  • Set up the room

  • Serve the meal

  • Clean up the dining area and kitchen

Volunteers sign up in shifts, starting at 1 p.m. on the day of the dinner for set-up and food prep, and 5 p.m. to get the serving line ready and serve guests; some arrive later to help with clean up. Volunteers eat a meal after our guests are served.


Monetary donation are always welcome, and are used to purchase paper products for serving the meal.


Sign-up sheets for volunteers, food donations, or monetary donations are in the church lobby. 

If you are planning to volunteer for a particular month, please do sign up. It helps us tremendously with planning for the day.
