Thursday’s Table is a program of the Northfield Community Action Center designed to provide a hot and healthy meal to people in Northfield who could benefit from a free, nutritious meal. Through the collaboration of the CAC, Northfield School District and the City of Northfield, free meals are served every Thursday evening from 5:00 to 6:30.
I interviewed Thursday’s Table project manager Mimi Trevino (left in left photo) yesterday afternoon at the Northfield Community Resource Center (NCRC). We were joined by Community Action Center (CAC) Project Manager Judy Bickel. After two months of operation, there have been some changes, including the involvement of local churches in helping to provide volunteers. They’re busier than expected, serving nearly 200 each week.
