FUNERAL POLICY – Winner United Methodist Church

**Meal Policy**

**The Funeral Committees are willing to provide a time of fellowship and support by furnishing lunch after a funeral service.  Families are asked to reimburse the church for the cost of the meal.  A suggested donation of $3 a plate is requested.  The church also asks the family to consider giving a gift to the church as a gesture of appreciation.

Morning funeral: Sliced ham or ham salad sandwiches, coleslaw, chips, pickles, cake and drinks such as coffee, water, ice tea. or lemonade.  If the family desires to provide other salad(s), the funeral committee will serve them as well.

Afternoon funeral: Sliced ham or ham salad sandwiches, chips, pickles, cake and drinks such as coffee, water, ice tea, or lemonade.

For any funeral: If the family wishes to have a complete meal, they are welcome to hire a caterer to be paid for by the family.   The funeral committee can serve the dinner & provide cake, coffee, buns and pickles, as desired.  Also, if the family has a group or organization that wish to provide the lunch, a funeral committee would be available to help serve.
