Annual kumla dinner to raise funds for food pantry

Helmar Lutheran Church will present its annual kumla dinner from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15. The proceeds go to support the HLC Food Pantry.

Dinner will be served buffet style. The basic meal includes ham, kumla (similar to a dumpling), applesauce, dessert and a beverage. For those who would prefer, a baked potato can be substituted for kumla. Carryouts will be available.

It is a free-will donation dinner. Guests are asked to support the fundraiser and thereby help neighbors in need.

The church is at 11935 Lisbon Road in rural Newark. For information, call 815-695-5489.
