Community Meals

Community Meals

We gather twice a month, usually the first and third Friday of every month, to share a meal with our neighbors and friends from near and far. This is a family-style meal that begins at 6:00pm, and is open to everyone. We regularly have groups come in to prepare the meal.   We ask that sponsors join the meal as family. If you would like to sponsor a community meal, please contact Helms Jarrell.


How to sponsor a community meal

Call the Treehouse to see what dates are available. Community meals are almost always on the first and third Fridays of each month except for the summer when they are once a month. The meal is served at 6pm. We ask sponsors to arrive no later than 5:30pm to set up the meal. Sponsors are asked to bring all items necessary for the meal including paper goods, ice, drinks, food, etc. We suggest bringing enough food for 30 neighbors plus the sponsoring volunteers/families. The meal begins with set up. Neighbors will help to serve the meal. Sponsors are asked to join in eating and spending time with neighbors. After we’ve eaten and had time to hang out, we’ll clean up together. Community Meals typically last until 7:30pm. This includes the clean up time. If the weather is nice, the meal will be outside. If not, we’ll go indoors. Once sponsors have unloaded supplies, they are encouraged to park in the gravel parking lot across from the Parkway house or in the Bette Rae Thomas Recreation Center parking lot.
