The Cargill Cares Team will be grilling hamburgers and hotdogs and various church and community groups will provide potato salad, baked beans, chips, desserts and drinks.

In July 2015, Cargill initiated the idea of a barbecue and gave a generous donation to the ministry. This has become an annual event. The Trinity family is especially grateful to Cargill for providing this barbecue as an opportunity to raise funds for this important ministry through donations. Church officials noted, they are also grateful for another chance to “thank God and the community for allowing us to serve our neighbors by providing meals over the last nine years.” Everyone is invited to share in this evening of food and fellowship while supporting the Lewisburg community. Donations received at the event will help to fund the meals in the future.
