Joakim Roth, Chattanooga Tenn.– The campus ministry “The House” hosts a monthly lunch every first Tuesday of each month.
Students are welcome to the “Hub”, located at 650 McCallie Ave. Chattanooga, TN, to partake in a homemade meal put together by the staff at The
House and members of the Men’s Ministry Network.
The event has become a popular spot for students to come meet new people, while eating a proper meal that reminds them of home.
Mattie Peay, a sophomore from Bristol, TN, is a regular Tuesday lunch attendee and encourages students to make a trip to the Hub for the special homemade meals.
“I love going to the Tuesday lunches, because they remind me of potlucks back home. Three dollars for a homemade meal is definitely a lot different than eating at Crossroads everyday,” Peay said.
Thomas Bowman, an intern at The House, is one of the chefs you will probably meet at the event.
“At The House we feel like it’s a good opportunity to serve the school and a good way for community. You really can’t beat good talks over great food,” Bowman said.
Last Tuesday students were seen eating chili and pulled pork with sweet tea as the beverage. According to Bowman, Tuesday lunches are different every month. A statement acknowledged by Peay.
“The meals are different every Tuesday lunch. I’ve eaten Mexican and have had really good Thanksgiving meals at the lunches. It tastes good because I know it’s homemade,” Peay laughed.
Zach Flowers, a graduate student from Franklin, says that Tuesday lunches are a great way to eat on campus if you are looking for different and close lunch options.
“The price for the Tuesday lunch is pretty cheap and it’s a convenient way to stay close to campus for lunch,” Flowers said.
Both Flowers and Peay concluded that the event is a better opportunity to meet unfamiliar faces.
“If you’re looking to get out of your comfort zone and take a break from your usual lunch routine, Tuesday lunch is something that needs to be experienced,” Flowers said.
The next Tuesday lunch will be held on February 4th and Bowman encourages students to make the trek to the Hub.
“Come on out! You won’t be disappointed,” Bowman said.
