Loaves and Fishes will host a “Lou’siana Night” of down home Cajun cooking at the Soup Kitchen on October 27 from 4-7 p.m. to benefit their food service programs.
The meal will feature a selection of Cajun foods, especially prepared by kitchen chefs, who will serve a sit-down meal and also offer take-out service.
Proceeds will be used to support the ministry of the soup kitchen program, which serves hot meals to an average of 150 men, women and children six days a week.
In addition, the Loaves and Fishes distributes excess or surplus food items to needy individuals and other service organizations in the community, including Urban Ministries, Salvation Army and Lighthouse Ministries.
Loaves and Fishes does not receive direct government support and relies heavily on donations from the community at large. It also runs on the efforts of dedicated volunteers who work in teams or crews on specific days, arriving early to prep and cook meals, which are served from 10:30 to noon, Monday through Saturday.
Loaves and Fishes is located to the corner of Foster and Third Street. A $10 donation requested. Tickets are available at the Soup Kitchen or by calling 645-9020 for ticket information.
