It’s almost time for the 25th-annual Free Spaghetti Supper, to be hosted by Blessed Sacrament Parish in Elmira. The meal will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9, at the parish center on St. Joseph’s Boulevard and High Street. Among the featured menu items are spaghetti with meat sauce or meatless sauce, salad, bread, drinks and dessert.
The supper is open to all members of the community, regardless of religious affiliation or income level. Between 500 and 600 meals are typically served by the volunteer crew that sets up, cooks, serves and cleans up. Blessed Sacrament puts a special focus on individuals and families who struggle with poverty by offering the supper at no cost, thanks to donations by parishioners and local businesses.
The Free Spaghetti Supper originated at St. Patrick Church in 1988 and later moved to the former St. Anthony Church before arriving at its present location at the parish center, across from Ss. Peter and Paul Church.
