First-Ever Food Inequality Dinner To Be Held Thursday, September 11, 2014.
Posted by Kelly Wallace on 09/08/2014
The Firehouse Shelter is hosting its first-ever FOOD INEQUALITY DINNER on Thursday, September 11, 2014 from 6-8 pm at South Highlands Presbyterian Church. The goal of the event is to educate middle school and high school age students about poverty & hunger, how food inequalities impact our health and over-all well being. Food disparities exist in Birmingham and we will challenge the youth to get involved in being a positive force in meeting the needs of the homeless who live in poverty and face hunger issues due to a number of factors.
We are grateful for our sponsors who have pledged support of this event! T-shirts will be provided to all participants by J-Rag (Greg Richards). In addition, we have received financial contributions from El Gringo Mexican Restaurant, Niki's West, Trinity UMC, Clearbranch UMC, and First Baptist Church of Trussville.
Publix, Premier Payroll and Parcels Too also made financial donations to help us in creating hunger and poverty awareness and to increase the success of our event. We are grateful for your support!
