A local restaurant has figured out a way to do its version of community outreach.
Jan. 29 will mark the third Sunday since Remi’s Seafood & More implemented “Sunday Dinner,” a way for people in the community to get a hot meal for free.
The restaurant closes at 6 p.m. for paying customers on Sunday and from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. they provide a meal for anyone interested in coming to get a cooked meal.
“There’s several people who pass by in the community,” said Tina Legrange, who owns Remi’s with her husband, Jonathan. “It prompted me to do this and call it Sunday dinner.”
Legrange said a different meal is provided every Sunday and so far, the event has been well received.
“People in the community have loved it,” she said. “We’ve had more people come to volunteer and help than those who came to eat. It feels good to help others. Helping others should be about the deed itself. We’re fortunate to have what we have to give to others.”
Legrange said they are always looking for volunteers to help.
“Coming here helping with Sunday dinner, you never know what someone else is going through,” she said. “One small gesture could change someone’s life.”
