Combining community, creativity, and compassion to fight hunger.

CHOOSE

ENJOY

Guests are invited to a delicious, simple dinner of soup (donated by local restaurants) and bread and desserts (donated by Church Health) while listening to live music.

I enjoyed my time volunteering for a good cause. Everyone was so meaningfully involved in helping. I find that all the volunteers and staff in charge have the same amazing productive and intentional mindset. Everyone was working towards the same goal. Thanks you for providing this great volunteer opportunity.
