Christmas at the Lunch Program

Guests and volunteers ready for Christmas lunch
Tamales from Esquina Chapina are always popular

CoFiA provides a hot lunch once a week between November and April, at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, Broad Avenue at Homestead Street, Palisades Park. Staff organizer Elias Garcia arranges educational opportunities on many subjects of interest to the workers, as well as films and videos that are both entertaining and informative. The lunch programs also are a good place to let workers know about OSHA training opportunities.

At holiday times, however, volunteers and guests are happy just to have time together in a warm friendly place, and share a hearty meal of hot tamales from our neighbor restaurant, La Esquina Chapina.
