Vineyard Gazette: Community suppers continue to fill a growing need

St. Andrew's Church in Edgartown and Grace Church in Vineyard Haven are among the churches offering local community supper programs: "As the Island’s cost of living continues to rise, local community supper programs are seeing an increase in residents looking for relief, with demand for food at an all-time high this year. 

"Run by volunteers at many of the Vineyard’s churches, community suppers began years ago as free sit-down dinners open to all in the winter months. The churches worked together to create an alternating schedule so that seven days a week someone could find a free meal during the off-season, along with a respite from the isolation of a Vineyard winter."
