First year residents (l-r) Grace Enns, Amy Wiens, Melody Turner, and Sydney Martens enjoy a slice of bread as students gather for Grebel’s weekly Community Supper.

Every Wednesday at 5:30pm, Grebel students, staff, and faculty gather together to share a meal called Community Supper. This tradition traces back to Grebel’s first president, J. Winfield Fretz, and began in the mid-1960s when the College was founded.
