SOUTH PLAINFIELD – The Tabernacle Church is always looking for ways to serve the community. On Saturday, March 30, from 9-11 a.m. at the South Plainfield Senior Center, over 150 residents enjoyed a free breakfast hosted by The Tabernacle Church. With menu items consisting of pancakes, sausage, bacon, bagels, pastries, assorted fruit, and much more for the entire family to enjoy completely free of charge, residents were amazed that there was no catch and that this was just an act of servitude by the church.
“The Tabernacle is a place where building genuine relationships with the residents in our community means a lot to us. We are always excited about spearheading events that are sure to connect people and show what community really means,” said De’Andre Salter, Senior Pastor of The Tabernacle Church.
Joined by the local South Plainfield Girl Scouts troop who assisted as hosts at the community breakfast, The Tabernacle Church also recruited over 35 volunteers whose time and efforts ensured that residents had a memorable experience. As residents entered the South Plainfield Senior Center, they were greeted by smiling faces as they completed the check in process to receive their free meal ticket. They were then able to participate in the breakfast buffet that was displayed across the entire front of the event room. Residents chose from an array of breakfast items and then were able to sit down and enjoy as classical music played softly in the background to complete the elegant atmosphere.
“I’m shocked, I wasn’t expecting all of this for free,” said Barbara Lullo of Piscataway.
“What a great thing to do, everyone was so nice,” said South Plainfield resident Beth Tschopp.
