Rescue Mission gives out free Easter meals

Rescue Mission serves Easter dinner

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Rescue Mission hosted its annual Easter meal on Sunday. Leaders said it’s been a tradition for more than a century. The meal was free and open to the public. 

Food will be served from noon to 3 p.m. This year’s dinner will consist of baked ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, sweet potatoes, dinner rolls, and sugar cream pie.

Officials at the Rescue Mission said they’re planning to feed around 1,500 people.

“We’re looking forward to providing this year’s Easter meal, as always, in a safe and family-centered environment. For those who may not have anyone or anywhere to go, we know that hope can begin with a hot meal.  For some, this could be the first step toward real change,” says The Rescue Mission’s CEO and Senior Pastor Donovan Coley.
