PARK CITY, Utah — The seasonal worker population is in town, in force, and the Christian Center of Park City (CCPC) is on a mission to feed them all a free, hot meal every Tuesday night.
Besides taking an exciting moment to watch their Argentinian countrymen compete in the FIFA World Cup, J1 employees from Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Costa Rica (a few of whom are housing at CCPC Executive Director Rob Harter’s house) are staffing the resorts in invaluable ways.
As one of the oldest services the nonprofit CCPC has offered for decades, Free Community Tuesday Night Dinners is starting back up this winter. The schedule is as follows: January 10, 17, 24, 31, February 7, 14, 21, and 28.
Other local nonprofits like Mountain Mediation come in to discuss with the diners, in Spanish, the potential perils and pitfalls regarding renters’ rights. The Park City Transit Dept. shares tips and tricks to get everybody to work on time and home afterward.
Matt Melville, Programs Director, told TownLift, “There are a whole lot of awesome seasonal workers back in town after a few COVID seasons, and we’re thrilled to invite them all to these weekly meals. It’s the best opportunity for local groups to feed and then to simply sit down and share a meal, some laughter, and some stories from home over a home-cooked meal that these friends will often get in Park City.”
Individual families, nonprofits, restaurant-related groups, community service organizations like Rotarians, and religious groups have already shown interest in providing home-cooked or otherwise prepared meals for 50-150 people.
The dinners are located upstairs in the community gathering space at the CCPC.
