The Federated Church of Edgartown again will hold clam chowder suppers this summer.

Last year the church raised over $1,600 for the Island Food Pantry during these events, which are held Thursday evenings in the church Parish House prior to the Thursday evening concerts by The Vineyard Sound held in the Federated Church Meetinghouse on South Summer street in Edgartown.

The first supper is scheduled for Thursday, July 10, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. The cost is the same as last year: $8 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. The clam chowder supper also includes salad, dessert and beverage.

Suppers will be held each Thursday night from July 10 through August 14.

The Vineyard Sound concerts, featuring the a cappella men’s group, begin at 8 p.m. following the suppers. An admission donation is requested for the concerts. For details, call 508-627-4421.
