MOUNTAIN — The House of Lazarus (HOL) hosted a ‘Christmas in July’ themed Dinner on the House on Thursday, July 27 at the Knox Presbyterian Church in Mountain. Nearly 100 people attended the free community meal, which is held every Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m.

Attendees were served a traditional Christmas meal, complete with turkey and pie. The Dinner on the House initiative was launched back in May, following a survey that found 49 percent of food bank clients were going entire days without eating. Everyone is welcome to attend the weekly Dinner on the House event, which aims to bring the community together to share a completely free, homemade and nutritious meal.

The menu for each dinner can be found at or on the House of Lazarus Facebook page.
