UP to 12 people a week are getting a free hot lunch and dessert at the Holy Trinity Hastings Anglican Church hall.
The meal, dubbed Trinity Tucker, is served between midday and 1pm every Tuesday, with the doors opening at 11.30am. No bookings are necessary.
The service has been running since the start of May, with the church paying for the meals with the help of donations from local businesses.
Volunteers from the church are preparing the food for those doing it tough, in need, or just lonely and who want to meet new friends.
“Church Warden Sandra Gould, the Reverend Tim Anderson, and myself saw the need for a safe and friendly place for the community to share a free meal,” church organiser Robbie Boer said.
“Western Port Community Support Centre also encourages its clients to come over.”
