Hi everyone,
I am trying to find a good tranlsation for "meal" in Spanish. I have used "comida" up to now, but how would I translate: "Which meals are prepared at your church (breakfast, lunch, dinner) " - my guess is "cuales comidas son servidas en su Iglesia (desayuno, almuerzo, cena" but I feel like there must be a better word for meal in this case. Thanks!

    ¿Qué comidas preparan en su iglesia (desayuno, almuerzo, cena)?

    But keep in mind that the names of these meals vary geographically.

    How abotu: "do they serve fried food at meals in your church?" Is " sirven comida frita en la comida de la iglesia?" That sounds strange to me. Thanks again!

    I'd use the plural" "sirven comida frita en las comidas de la iglesia?"

    Yo escribiría: Sirven frituras en etc. o Sirven comida con frituras etc.
    En España se suele utilizar "frituras".

    :D Good one speedier! It probably refers to pot-lucks, where people bring food from home and everybody eats at church after the worship service. Is very common in our churches. Southern churches [and others] would normally have fried chicken.
    Thanks for that borgonyon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potluck

    I had only ever heard of the original potluck before, where a traveller accepted whatever was in the pot, which would have been on the hearth for days, if not weeks, being added to as it was being used.
