Introducing Beneficent Banquets

Fall is a time of giving.  And giving to others is one of the most rewarding things you can do during this time.  When you give to others it helps to develop a deeper appreciation for what you have and in return makes you more thankful.  We often forget how lucky we are to have home cooked meals and food at home.  However, some people do not have this luxury in their lives and are food insecure. 

Around 13% of the student body at URI experiences food insecurity.  This number is extremely high and very alarming.  This means that a little over 1,000 students go home every night wondering when they will have their next meal and how they are going to afford it.  No student should ever have to make the choice between paying for their housing and paying for their meal plan.  In an initiative to help solve this prevalent issue, the Kingston Congregational Church (KCC) has decided to host a nonprofit charitable event to fight back against hunger.  

On Sunday, November 14, 2021 from 4:00-8:00 pm the KCC invites you to join Chef Christina Dewi Ross with 8-12 of your closest friends for a special night of cooking and dining!  You will learn to make a delicious, Indonesian-themed meal alongside an experienced chef and then enjoy the multiple course dinner that you created together.  The cost is a $100 donation to help KCC generously support local organizations like the JonnyCake Center and We Share Hope, so they can help combat food insecurities.  This will be a one of a kind experience that you definitely shouldn’t miss!  You will be able to learn new skills and support your community, which is certainly a doubly rewarding experience!  

To register yourself or a group for this experience, please call the church office at 401-783-5330.  Download the event flyer and spread the word.  Thank you!
