Come and Dine is a free Community Dinner that is prepared and served at Aurora First Baptist Church. Come and Dine takes place during the seven weeks of summer when school is out until it starts again in the fall, helping those families most in need. In 2016 - 10,946 meals were served or delivered to elderly and families who would not have had any food to eat. We average 521 meals per night. We prepare, serve and clean up three nights a week.
