Pasties for PORCH
Our special bakes for the Peace United Methodist Church in Virginia, MN, provide free meals to the community on most Wednesday nights through the church's ”PORCH” program (People Offering Relationship, Community & Hope). Annually, the Lodge gives their cooks one night off. The Lodge made the pasties, served the meal, and then cleaned the church for them. Master Kardell then presented the Church with a check donation from the Lodge to help keep the program viable.
