Christian Service Annual Poor Man’s Supper
Sunday, November 20, 2016
The annual Poor Man’s Supper benefiting the Christian Service Program of Shreveport-Bossier will be held on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016 at 5:00 pm. 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.
“We will be featuring several different soups from Monjuni’s and IHOP,” 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 $5 donation at the door. No one will be turned away and freewill donations will be gladly accepted.
“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 Lynn Cawthorne, president of the Christian Service board. “Ongoing daily needs of Christian Service operations also include food purchase and preparation costs, so funds are needed.”
Sister Margaret McCaffrey founded Christian Service Hospitality House in 1970 to serve those in need. Sister never turned anyone away; she fed the hungry with love, respect and dignity. Christian Service is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that has served more than three million meals since 1970.
