In the 1980s the café and outreach meals service was set up as part of a Government Training scheme where young people were given work experience in catering and hospitality. When the Training scheme funding was withdrawn the church made the decision to continue the café and outreach meals as it was recognised that this was an important service to our community in Pathhead.
Lunches are served in the Café between 12 noon and 2 pm from Tuesday – Friday and outreach meals are delivered to the housebound from Monday – Friday within the community.
Both of these services has proved to be an important way of building relationships and caring for both those who visit the café on a regular basis and those who are housebound either short or long term. A genuine concern for the well-being of the customers has built up over the past number of years and it is obvious that both recipients of meals and those involved in serving enjoy a high level of satisfaction.
For further information on any of the services please contact Janet Cargill – Outreach Co-ordinator on 01592 204635.
