The Edgartown Federated Church will continue hosting its annual chowder suppers on July 9, 16, 23 and 30; and August 6 and 13, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. at the Federated Church Parish House on South Summer street in Edgartown. The profits from the past two years each exceeded $1,000, which is given to the Island Food Pantry to help purchase goods not donated, sorely needed to help families on the Island during the winter months.

The price and menu of the suppers is $8 for adults and $5 for children, which includes a cup of chowder, salad, iced tea or lemonade, and a large chocolate chip cookie.

Following the suppers and under separate admission, the Vineyard Sound, an a capella group performs at the church meetinghouse at 8 p.m.

For more information or to volunteer to help serve, call 508-626-4421 and speak with Mary-Jean or Jerry.
