The Lion's Den (Community Lunch)

Leaders: Ruthie Fassnacht and Becky Adams

Since February 1997, The Lion's Den has been serving hot, nutritious luncheon  to anyone who walks through the doors on Wednesdays from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. 

Meals are free of charge but we gladly accept donations. 

In 2018 the Lion's Den served over 8000 meals.

Companies and schools in the Plainfield area may, for an in-kind donation of $5/lunch, receive meals delivered on schedule. This small contribution helps defray the cost of the food prepared and served to the needy or to senior citizens who might not otherwise fix a full meal for themselves. Call 317-450-5568 to arrange for delivery of meals.

Large salads may be substituted for any entrée. Unless noted in the menu, every meal comes with salad, bread, and a tasty dessert.

Would your group or organization like to volunteer to help with our Wednesday Communty Lunch?  For more information please call Ruthie at 317-450-5568 or send us an email at

By request, here's the recipe for The Lion's Den Memphis Style Barbeque and Sauce
