Moravian College to help feed Bethlehem's hungry at holiday lunch

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania)—For the fifth consecutive year, Moravian College will host a holiday luncheon at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity to provide food to residents of Bethlehem who might otherwise not be able to enjoy a seasonal feast. The luncheon will be held on Saturday, December 13th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It will be attended by more than 175 people from a variety of Bethlehem social service agencies including the South Bethlehem Neighborhood Center, Center City Ministries Shelter, New Bethany Ministries, Trinity Episcopal Church, Fountain Hill School Family Center, and Donegan School Family Center.

For each of the last four years, more than fifty Moravian College faculty, staff, and students have volunteered to help serve a traditional holiday dinner of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, carrots, cake, and pie. Moravian College continues its partnership with social services agencies to provide outreach to residents of Bethlehem that would benefit from some holiday spirit and a nutritious hot meal. Cathedral Church is providing the site and Moravian College is providing the food and volunteers for the lunch. Moravian College volunteers will be setting up, serving food, greeting, interacting with guests and their children. Arts and craft activities will be available for children, and the Moravian Jazz Quartet will provide music entertainment.

The Cathedral Church of the Nativity is located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, at Wyandotte Street/Route 378 on south end of Hill-to-Hill Bridge in Sayre Hall.
