CASHMERE — A large sign placed out on the sidewalk in front of the Cashmere United Methodist Church at 213 S. Division St. reads “Free Community Meal Today.”

People begin to stream in to the old brick church shortly after 5 p.m. Senior citizens, some shuffling with the help of canes and walkers, the homeless and hungry are welcome here for sure. But that’s not everybody. There are families with young children, busy teachers in need of an early dinner, Crunch-Pak and packing house employees getting off their shifts. Cashmere’s Mayor Jeff Gomes, eager to keep his finger on the pulse of the community over a sloppy Joe sandwich, rarely misses the weekly meal.
