Thank You Zions Bank!

Tony Eppich – Blackfoot branch manager giving check to Jackie Young – president of CDT

Costs of our Tuesday night dinners have increased this year in order to prepare the meals as “take-out” for our drive-by service (necessary because of covid-19 precautions). We are so grateful for a $1000 donation we received from the Blackfoot branch of Zions Bank to help offset those additional costs! We very much appreciate the consistent support we’ve received from Zions Bank through the years as we work to serve the people in our community.

Tuesday Evening Dinners Resume — as Drive-By

Due to covid-19 precautions, we’ve had to change the way we do things, but Tuesday night prepared dinners resume on Tuesdays starting December 1st 2020. Unfortunately, we will not be able to resume the fellowship of a shared in-person meal at this time, but prepared meals will be available for pick-up in a drive-by fashion from 5pm to 6:30pm each Tuesday from now through the end of March 2021.

For ease of traffic flow, please arrive via Judicial Street. Driving past University Street, turn right onto Stout, then right again onto Court Street. Hug the curb and tell the volunteer how many meals you want to take home. Then pick up your meals!

We are grateful to be able to share meals with you this way for now, though all of us look forward to a return to more normal Tuesday night dinners in the future. Best wishes for a safe and happy winter season to all – and a big thank you to those who have donated supplies and money to make this happen and to our caring volunteers who are working tirelessly to make this all work.
