From The Detroit News:

On Fridays during Lent, just a little before 4 p.m., a line of cars starts to wrap around Inkster Road in Redford Township. It’s not a line for a popular fast food chain, but the fish fry drive-thru at a local Catholic church.

The men’s club at St. Robert Bellarmine and other parishes in Metro Detroit have taken more of an unconventional approach to reel in more customers for Friday fish fries during Lent.

St. Bellarmine has sponsored Friday fish fries for six years, but Jim Vote, organizer and member of the church’s men’s club, said this year’s high demand led to the curbside service.

“With a gym that seats 400 and a to-go line for people unable to sit down, we still were not able to accommodate everyone,” Vote said. “Then we thought, ‘how cool would it be if we could do a drive-thru.’ “
