Ongoing effort

The longevity of an agency that serves free meals in Lawrence is a tribute to its supporters and volunteers.

Happy birthday — and thank you — to LINK, the Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen.

LINK this week celebrates its 26th year of serving a hot meal to the city’s hungry. The agency is headquartered in the basement of the First Christian Church, at 10th and Kentucky streets. It started on Valentine’s Day in 1985 at St. John’s Catholic Church.

LINK serves lunch four times a week, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and some holidays.

For an agency to maintain such an important service for so long shows dedication and support from a variety of sources, including the churches, volunteers and donors. All deserve our thanks.

Here’s wishing LINK several more decades of service.
