The Princeton Cornerstone Community Kitchen (PCCK) offers a free and nutritious meal every week, even on holidays. Volunteers from the community serve the meal from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.
In partnership with the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) and Princeton United Methodist Church (PUMC), Cornerstone now serves more than 100 people each week. Some come for the food, some for the fellowship and friendly atmosphere. All are welcome, no questions asked. In addition, we offer a clothing store, health screening, English Second Language (ESL) courses, and other services for our guests
Even though our windows and doors are shuttered, a lot of activity continues at Cornerstone. Every week, since the end of May, a small group of volunteers meet on Wednesdays and assemble grocery bags to be picked up by our guests.
In July, we expanded our impact on hunger by adding home deliveries, two routes, delivering to over 20 shut in Seniors.
Not only are we offering approximately 50 % of the number of meals we were serving before the virus, we are offering clothes on a limited basis, and we have continued with our ESL classes (virtual), graduating FOUR students from the Basic English class this last month.
So, while you won’t see the bright lights of our Fellowship Hall and hear the sounds of music and conversation, much is still happening.
We are proud that Cornerstone, while respectful of this virus, has not bowed its head!
