Dining alone this winter? You don't have to: Island churches and community groups invite you to a free meal on every day of the week, and the Edgartown Council on Aging has a pair of very inexpensive weekly meals as well. Here's the schedule: 

Mondays, the Edgartown Community Suppers take place at 5 p.m. at the Whaling Church's Baylies Room, sponsored by the United Methodist Church of Martha's Vineyard.

Tuesdays, the Edgartown Council on Aging has its $2 Tuesday Lunch (reservations required) and Chilmark Community Church holds a Soup Supper starting at 5:30 p.m.

Wednesdays, First Congregational Church in West Tisbury holds its Community Supper starting at 5:30 p.m.

Each Thursday is Good Shepherd Parish supper night at St. Augustine's in Vineyard Haven, 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Grace Episcopal Church in Vineyard Haven holds its supper Fridays from 5 to 6:30 p.m. According to the Vineyard Gazette, these meals are taking place at the First Baptist Church parish hall while Grace Church undergoes construction. Also on Fridays, the Edgartown Council on Aging has its $5 Friday Café (reservations required).

United Methodist Church of Martha's Vineyard's Saturday Night Suppers take place at 6 p.m. at the Trinity Parish hall in the Campgrounds, through March. The church is also starting a Saturday men's breakfast Feb. 1 at 8:30 a.m.

Federated Church in Edgartown hosts a lasagna lunch every Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., through March.

You don't have to bring anything to a community meal, but if you want to help out, ask to volunteer or make a contribution.
