  • Description: Hands Across the Table offers a free hot meal every Wednesday evening for those seeking food and/or friendship and support. Our Mission: To feed all who are hungry in body and spirit. We do so willingly and with compassion and understanding. This community meal program began when several local women came together with the common goal of providing a free, weekly hot supper to those in need in the Greater Laconia area. Their goal was to create a warm, friendly atmosphere of giving and receiving, similar to that of a big family meal. They designed the program for those in need of food and/or friendship and support. The ambia...nce, organization and service of Hands Across the Table are structured to support these principals. The first meal was served in June 2011. A free sit-down dinner is served each WEDNESDAY from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the St. Andre Bessette Parish Hall on Gilford Ave. in Laconia (behind Sacred Heart Church). Doors open at 4:00 PM. Guests include those in financial need, in poor health, or in need of fellowship and support, as well as the homeless and the elderly. Many families with children attend regularly.
