BLACKFOOT â€” It has been nearly five years since some friends saw a need to help hungry people in the community and put together the Community Dinner Table.
On Tuesday, members of the Christ's Cowboy Country Church served the final Community Dinner Table of the 2012-2013 year. The first on Oct. 28, 2008, drew just 92 participants. There were well over 300 this time around.
"We've served 23 meals over each winter for the past five years," said Elizabeth Fields, one of the officers in the non-profit organization. That has totaled over 31,500 since that first one.
