On Easter Sunday, The Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist will host a free Easter Luncheon for individuals and families in the York area.

The luncheon is open to everyone, especially those who may be shelter-bound, homeless or living alone.

The meal will be served in the parish hall from 12:30 to 2 p.m. and will feature ham with all the fixings, beverages, desserts and special Easter treats for children. The church is located at 140 N. Beaver St. in York.

In an effort to say "thank you," all members of any York City or County emergency response team, ambulance team, police force or fire department are also invited to attend.

For those on-duty emergency and law enforcement personnel wishing to take advantage of the meal, a pick-up service is available. Orders for pick-up on Easter can be placed by calling (717) 848-1862, ext. 7, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. through Thursday. Orders will also be accepted until 1 p.m. Sunday at (717) 968-6833.
