It’s Suppah-time!

baked-been-supperMany southern to midcoast-area churches in Maine dish out a heap of food and hospitality at their down-home, public bean “suppahs.” But some churches hold other savory food events, such as turkey, roast beef and lobster suppers! The following list highlights many such public suppers, a number of which are held throughout the summer and into leaf-peeping season. We couldn’t include them all, so check with local newspapers, ask around and be on the lookout for road-side signs announcing upcoming supper events. Call ahead to confirm dates and times.
