PHOT: Pasta frenzy

The Pasta Feed is a free weekly meal being held every Friday night by the community’s churches.

Volunteers serve up plates of pasta at the weekly Pasta Feed community dinner at the Anglican Church on Friday.

The Pasta Feed is a free weekly meal being held every Friday night by the community’s churches. It was conceived by Baptist Church member Amanda Raccah, who volunteered at a similar event while in New Zealand last summer.

“It was a bunch of different churches in the town giving out free pasta for anyone and everyone,” she said. Upon returning to Revelstoke, she mentioned the dinner to her fellow church-goers, and they thought it would be a great event to start here.

“There’s definitely a need for bringing people in the community together,” said Raccah. “It’s a place we want people to feel welcome and part of something. Where they can have a free meal and conversation with a stranger.”

The Pasta Feed has taken place twice so far and will run for another eight weeks, every Friday at the Anglican Church from 6:30–8 p.m. Volunteers from the Alliance, Anglican, Baptist and C3 churches help out, while the churches pay for the food, with some help from Cooper’s and Mountain Meals.

“We’re open for donations. If people are interested in being part of it, that’s great,” said Raccah. “It’s basically the churches coming together because we feel we’ve been given a lot and we want to give back.”
