Feasting with Friends

August 1, 2020 @ 12:00 am August 31, 2020 @ 11:59 pm

Feasting with Friends is a community-wide event filled with lunch and dinner parties to benefit Kitchen Angels on any date in the month of August. Anyone can host a lunch or dinner in their home and 100% of the proceeds benefit Kitchen Angels.

We invite you to host a Feasting with Friends event that suits your style. Entertain with lunch, dinner, “appetizers & cocktails,” “dessert & champagne,” or “tacos & margs” themed party. Have fun and make it your own!

While there is not a ticket fee, donations to Kitchen Angels are expected from each event.

You’re welcome to host a private or public dinner party. Private means the host invites the guests. Public means the host invites guests as well as Kitchen Angels may assign guests to your dinner party. A public event gives guests an opportunity to attend a Feasting with Friends party should they not know a host.
