High Point, NC - Eat up and help a good cause, that's what it's all about. The annual Feast of Caring Event is Friday, November 8th at First Presbyterian Church on North Main Street in High Point.
We're talking endless soups, fresh-baked bread and live music for both lunch and dinner. It's a good time, but the best part is all in the giving. Organizers hope to collect $12,000 today, which will help Open Door Ministries run its shelters, food kitchens and pantries.
One of their biggest supporters, four-time Grammy-Award winning Opera singer Tony Griffey told us, at one point, his family needed their help too.
"My parents, both hard-working people worked in the furniture industry here in High Point. And there were some times that we couldn't make ends meet and we used Open Door Ministries. It was Urban Ministry back then," said Griffey. "I always said, if I ever made it so to speak, it would be one of my prime things I would give back to."
Donations from the Feast of Caring will go to support Open Door Ministries programs which include Emergency Services, Men's Homeless Shelter, Arthur Cassell Transitional House and the Father's Table Food Kitchen, which provides over 130,000 meals a year to those in need in our community.
You don't need a ticket to get in, just stop by First Presbyterian Church (918 North Main Street, High Point) - they'll be happy to see you!
Lunch goes until 2pm Friday. Dinner is from 5pm-8pm. A donation is $15 for one or $30 per family includes a meal of endless soups and breads. And don't forget to take home a piece of pottery when you leave or a bundle of holiday cards. For more information, call Open Door Ministries at 336-885-0191.
