Feasting with Friends

October 12, 2019 October 13, 2019

Feasting with Friends is a community-wide weekend of lunch and dinner parties to benefit Kitchen Angels with an encouraged date of October 12 & 13 or choose any date in September or October that works for you! Anyone can host a lunch or dinner in their home and 100% of the proceeds will benefit Kitchen Angels.

We are seeking 50 Feasting with Friends dining parties. Each host can entertain with either a lunch or dinner party in their home or a community space. While there is not a ticket fee, donations are expected at each event.

You can 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 can 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. This year’s encouraged theme is New Mexican food.
