A northern Illinois church is bringing back its free monthly Sunday dinners after they were interrupted by the pandemic.
Vicki Boone is a volunteer at First United Methodist Church of DeKalb. She said the "R.E.A.L meal sharing food and friendship" program is bigger than a handout.
“It stands for -- I think what we hope all churches would be at their best -- relevant, engaging, authentic and loving,” she explained.
Boone emphasized that this is at the heart of what the establishment does.
