The annual Poor Man’s Supper benefiting the Christian Service Program of Shreveport-Bossier will be held on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015 from 5–7pm.
The symbolic meal of soup and bread, which signifies what many homeless eat for their supper, will be served in the Hunter Activities Building of the First United Methodist Church in downtown Shreveport.
The Poor Man’s Supper is held annually to raise critical funds and awareness for the ministry of Christian Service that provides food, clothing and help with utility bills for the hungry and homeless of our area.
“This is the first time multiple restaurants have participated in this event,” said Executive Director of Christian Service, Al Moore. “Christian Service is so pleased to have their help to raise money for the critical work of feeding the hungry.
Tickets are a $20 donation at the door. Attendees will choose from hearty and delicious soup and bread provided by restaurants including Monjuni’s, Notini’s, IHOP, Maxwell’s Market, Ristorante Giuseppe, Ernest’s, Lagniappe Catering, Doerle Foods, Hickory Stick and others.
No one will be turned away and freewill donations will be gladly accepted.
The Poor Man’s Supper this year will kick off the Capital Building Fund Campaign for the new Christian Service facility that will be located in Hope Connections on Levy Street in Shreveport.
“Christian Service must raise the money needed to move to the new Hope Connections facility and build the new kitchen, clothing area and administrative offices,” said Jane Snyder, president of Christian Service board. “Ongoing daily needs of Christian Service operations also include food purchase and preparation costs, so funds are needed.”
