Our goal is to serve
Third Tuesday suppers is a free community meal program that began in October 2009 and is held every month at the United Methodist Church of Geneva, 211 Hamilton, Geneva Illinois.

Delicious, freshly prepared meals are made in the church kitchen, with an eye to creative, themed menus using nutritious ingredients.
The suppers are held from 4:30-7pm in the second floor Dining Hall which is elevator-accessible. The suppers are free to anyone who attends–and we mean it!
Just show up.
No reservations, no tickets.
The Dining Hall is attractively arranged and the lighting is like a restaurant. Tables have tablecloths, fresh seasonal flowers and candles. Two buffet lines are set up–so waiting time is short or not at all.
It is no secret–Third Tuesday Suppers at the United Methodist Church of Geneva is THE place to be each month!
