About This Event
The Friends For Food Luncheon on Friday, March 8, 2019 is our signature spring event developed to increase awareness and build relationships. Rather than sell tickets, table hosts invite friends to be their guests at their table of eight. Guests will be introduced to our organization and our mission with personal stories from recipients and volunteers. At the end of the program, guests are invited to make a donation to ‘fund a need’ for our “Months of Meals” program..
Guests will enjoy a buffet of appetizers as they network and mingle amongst themselves. Once the program begins, each guest will relax with a seated meal service including a specialty soup, salad, bread, and dessert. During the event, we will recognize our lead gift sponsor and volunteer of the year.
As our first-annual signature event we anticipate 100 people in attendance. This event will provide funding for our 2019 meal distribution (approximately 8,000 meals) in Springfield, Missouri.
