Summit County's Community Dinner is offered every Tuesday from 5-7p.m. at the Elks Lodge in Silverthorne.
Every Tuesday evening, the Rotary Club of Summit County teams with the Elk’s Lodge 2561 and Lord of the Mountains Lutheran Church to provide a hot, nutritious meal to any and all who care to join us. The program has evolved to provide more than just food. The Community Dinner offers a weekly gathering spot for friends, and families frequently bring balloons and use the facilty to celebrate their children’s birthdays. Depending on the season, we get between 200 and 600 diners each week, and we’ve served over 100,000 meals in under ten years, with over a third of them going to children. Our efforts have been covered by the Washington Post, New York Times, any number of local publications, and has been used as a case study for similar efforts throughout the United States.
