Community Meal

Portage Community Free Meal
3rd Saturday of each month

11:30 am – 1 pm

St. John’s Episcopal Church
207 West Pleasant Street
Portage, WI 53901


The Community Meal Program with the help of many churches, local organizations, youth groups and individuals has served meals since 1996. The core group of organizers are a community spirited group, both ecumenical and humanitarian.


An ecumenical gathering for nourishment and fellowship.  We welcome the whole community to this free meal.  

How Accomplished:

The meal is prepared once a month at St. John’s Episcopal Church (because of central location and space is available without charge.)  We depend on donations and volunteers to make this possible.

Time Commitment:

The more volunteers we have, the less often volunteers have to work.  Ideally volunteers work once or twice a year.  We need 8-10 volunteers for each meal.
Opportunities To Help:
  • Food Prep, Set-up, Serve, Clean-up
  • Provide food
  • Be part of the core group of organizers
  • Be an individual volunteer
  • Organize your church or group to host a meal  
Call Barb Chesney 608-742-6286 if interested


You are always welcome to come and join us for companionship and good food on the third Saturday of the month.
