The food will be available on the first Tuesday of the month and will include the sale of gyros as is the normal practice of the church’s Philoptochos Society. They are $7 each and include one tzatziki with each additional one being 25 cents.
Other menu items are:

“Online ordering will be offered, and we highly encourage to pre-order online so you are assured of getting an order. This first sale will be on Election Day Nov. 3, so we anticipate much activity for this event,” he added. “This will be a carry-out only event with no inside dining.
