Veradale UCC hosting annual harvest dinner

By The Spokesman-Review

The congregation of the Veradale United Church of Christ invites the community to attend its 72nd annual Harvest Dinner next Saturday. In recent years the menu has been expanded to include vegetables grown in the church’s garden, which also supplies produce to the Spokane Valley Partners Food Bank.

The meal will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 27 at the church, 611 N. Progress Road. The menu includes turkey, ham and Swedish meatballs. Several gift baskets will be raffled. There is no set price for the meal, but donations are requested. Proceeds will benefit church programs.

Fall extravaganza

Word of Life Community Church at 6701 N. Idaho Road in Newman Lake will host a Fall Extravaganza and food drive Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be food items available for purchase and numerous vendors. Those attending are asked to bring nonperishable food items for the food drive.

Food distribution

Second Harvest and Thrivent for Lutherans will host a mobile food distribution truck at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday. The food is free to anyone who needs it.
