Just in time with the weather cooling down, Swift Current residents can stop by the local Salvation Army Food Bank to warm up with a free dinner.

Wednesday night Community Meals are returning, and the first one of the fall season is set for tomorrow evening.  

A team from St. Olaf's Church will be serving up plates of slow roasted beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, California vegetables, fresh sliced tomatoes, dill pickle coleslaw and ending things off with cake for dessert. 

Arlene McKenzie with the Swift Current Salvation Army said the meals are open to anyone and everyone. 

“We strive to create an atmosphere of welcome, acceptance, and a ‘come as you are’ feel,” she added. “To gather at our tables and have some food, fun, and fellowship.” 

While donations are always appreciated and accepted, McKenzie stated that nothing is ever expected from attendees. 

Meal sponsorship is another option for local businesses, groups, or individuals who are interested in getting involved in an impactful way. 

Doors open at 5 p.m. on Wednesdays and dinner is dished up half an hour later.
