About Us

The Banquet is a non-denominational meal outreach at Trinity Lutheran Church that  began in the spring of 2005 under the guidance of Pastor Steve Sathre of Trinity Lutheran Church, and the coordination and marketing efforts of our first Banquet Director, Rosemarie (Tudy) Fennern. Today, we serve approximately 400-450 free meals every Thursday evening, and have since added meals on both Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. 

The Banquet is dependent on volunteer groups and individuals to operate the feeding outreach.  Volunteers typically come from churches, businesses, corporations, service clubs, schools and families.  With the help of our dedicated weekly volunteers, each group plans, purchases, prepares, serves and cleans up afterward.

The Banquet is thankful and grateful for the continued time and efforts of our current volunteers and groups. We look forward to supporting our new group friends in the community.
