Harvard Square Meals

Started in 1982, the Harvard Square Meals Program is an ecumenical ministry of 10 churches in Harvard Square. It serves a nutritious, sit-down dinner every Thursday to more than 120 people at Christ Church, at Zero Garden Street.

Volunteers are needed on Thursday afternoons from 2 to 5 pm to prepare the food and set tables, and from 5 to 8 pm to serve and clean up.
