There are many occasions when the women of the parish are called on to contribute food for a fund-raising occasion. Use your best skills — the more appetizing the food, the larger the take! The following ideas and recipes are sure to succeed.

DIRECTIONS

The custom of having a coffee hour after church services is gaining in popularity in suburban towns and rural areas. Coffee (and something to go with it) is served in the parish hall or recreation room. The food is always contributed, and sometimes a small charge is made, if funds are needed for some church project.

Homemade cookies are always popular, and wedges of coffee cake, doughnuts, and slices of buttered quick bread are all good choices.
