About

History

Originally the New London Community Meal Center (NLCMC) was called The Health and Welfare Community Ministries. It was founded in 1985 by Laurie Bellinger in association with The Mount Olive Seventh Day Adventist Church of New London. She served as the dedicated executive director until her death in 1999. A year later Mount Olive Seventh Day Adventist Church turned over control to a non-member corporation governed by self-perpetuating Board of Directors, thereby facilitating uninterrupted food service to the community from 1985 through to the present day.

Mission

The mission of the NLCMC is to provide the food insecure residents of New London County with nutritious meals in an environment of hospitality and respect.

Program

The NLCMC provides lunch five days a week and dinner six days a week. In addition, volunteer groups use the NLCMC facilities to prepare and serve dinner on the second Saturday of the month and on the fourth Saturday a pre-made lunch is served. The food used to make meals at the center is primarily obtained from The Gema E. Moran United Way Food Bank in New London and is supplemented by donations from various businesses and agencies, as well as individual donors. Currently the NLCMC has only employees, a full time kitchen manager and part time assistant/security staff member. Consequently volunteers are a vital and indispensable part of the workforce in the daily operation of the NLCMC. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact the volunteer coordinator at (860) 536-4784.
