POMEROY — Mulberry Country Kitchen, located in the Mulberry Community Center at 260 Mulberry Ave., recently received a grant from the Sisters of St. Joseph Charities Foundation.

The Sisters have been a blessing to the Meigs Cooperative Parish over the years by awarding a number of grants. This grant allowed the kitchen to purchase needed appliances, including a commercial refrigerator and gas stove.

Father Tim Kozac, of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Pomeroy, recently visited the kitchen and was said he was pleased to to see the grant put to good use.

The kitchen runs entirely on donations of $3 per meal or three food items, beverages are included. The menu is published in advance for the entire month and is available at the center. An example of a menu is garlic chicken, cheesy pasta bake, tossed salad and apple spice cake.

Know as “the place where everyone eats,” the Mulberry Country Kitchen is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 11:30 a.m and 12:30 p.m. and offers low-cost meals to anyone who visits.
