Twice a month we provide free, family-friendly dinners, which are served in a relaxed atmosphere. There are other organizations in the Derry, New Hampshire area that also offer free and delicious meals to the public. Please see the calendar on the right-hand side of this blog for a list of upcoming meals. And don't forget the offerings of the Sonshine Soup Kitchen and The Derry Salvation Army (described on the left-hand side of this blog)!

On Sunday, June 2, 2013, the folks who bring you Elijah's Table -- the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration and Etz Hayim Synagogue -- celebrated their new granite sign. The sign symbolizes the solid commitment the two organizations have to each other and to the community. It was a great day. Please join us at our upcoming June dinners: June 9th at the church, and June 23rd at the synagogue.

It was a perfect May evening. Nice weather. Friends. Good food (tuna salad, garden salad, mac and cheese, eggplant, and noodle kugel). And cake and ice cream. Who could want more? Photos are: "Evidence that Frank Does Dishes," "Three Generations of Volunteers," "The Pie Raffle is Drawn," "I won a pie!" and "I won a pie, too!"

Today was (1) Etz Hayim Synagogue's "Walk the Land" celebration of Israel's 65th birthday, (2) Cinco de Mayo, and (3) another day of Kayla earnestly selling hand-made cookies to raise money for Elijah's Table. Go Kayla!!! We are so grateful to volunteers like Kayla, without whom we could not offer our delicious dinners to the public. Please join us on May 19th for a great meal, which will include pasta, salad, kugel, tuna fish, and ice cream. Yum!

It was good to be with you all on Sunday. We had cheese and cracker appetizers, pie and ice cream and, of course, wonderful food in between. And in between and all around there were good friends. Here are some pictures from our evening: "Cheese and crackers," "A distinguished fellow," "Man in fun checkered shirt," "I won a pie!" "Eryore finds a home," "Folks checking out the blog," "Woman in a fancy red shirt," "Pooh finds a home," "The shirt I want," and "Good friends." Please join us next time.

I can't think of a better time to have an Elijah's Table dinner. The disturbing events in Boston have affected us all. Come relax with us on Sunday, April 21. Have a great meal and some pie with a bit of ice cream. And maybe a door prize: we're featuring Winnie-the-Pooh and Eryore. "When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" "What's for [dinner]?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” ― A.A. Milne [with a minor edit].

It was Spring outside today, and we had a huge crowd. We managed to find seats and tables for everyone and we heard folks saying things like, "Fabulous meal," and "I worked as the lead waitress at a fancy restaurant for many years, but the service here is even better than it was there!" We were thrilled to have so many guests, and doubly thrilled that they enjoyed our food. We had appetizer plates with cheese, gaucomole and hummos; eggplant, lasagna, and mac and cheese; and pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream. Please make our next event just as terrific by joining us and bringing your friends.
