Come and Dine community dinners will begin for the summer on Monday, June 26 at Aurora First Baptist Church.

These free meals will be held from 5:15 to 7 p.m. each Monday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout the summer until August 16.

Organizers prefer people to come to the church to eat, but delivery is available for those inside the Aurora city limits who do not have access to transportation. Those are invited to call 678-3774 to schedule their delivery.

Meals this year are sponsored by First Baptist Church, Engage Church, Fundamental Methodist Church, Grace Lutheran, Holy Trinity, Nazarene Church, Aurora Presbyterian Church, Orange Presbyterian Church and Mercy Hospital.

"With the economy causing everyone to have to stretch every dollar, these churches and hospital want to help everyone possible," said event director Barbara Wommack. "So if you are a family of one or a family of several, please come and fellowship and enjoy a full course meal."
