HHSB thanks community for support at kitchen

Hoosier Heartland State Bank would like to thank all who volunteered at the Friendship Kitchen recently and encourage others to help out the cause.

The Friendship Kitchen is located at the New Bethel Fellowship Church, 406 Mill St. Crawfordsville. They open their doors every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. to those in need of a meal. Meals are served at 11 a.m. 

“Participating in this program is an important part of our mission,” Trey Etcheson of HHSB said. “We are committed to giving back to the community in many ways and we appreciate all the HHSB team members who worked so hard at the kitchen last week.”

The website states that the Friendship Kitchen began when a handful of people from New Bethel Fellowship Church approached the community with the idea of offering a free meal to anyone in need. With the help of community volunteers, the Friendship Kitchen has shared a warm, nourishing meal and fellowship every Saturday since June 1, 2007. The overwhelming response to the Friendship Kitchen has been represented in the serving of more than 32,000 meals. The Kitchen is funded by various donors and has been partially funded by a grant from the Montgomery County Community Foundation. It is an outreach that has proven to touch the lives of many as each contribution helps make the Friendship Kitchen possible.
