This community event not only welcomes those who may be experiencing financial hardships to come to enjoy a meal but also is intended for anyone to attend. Meals will be served in person and available via carry-out.

In addition to enjoying a meal, entertainment will be provided. The Cheryl McCray Band, Dan the One Man Band, dance teams, and others will put on a family-friendly show to watch while they dine.

The event is supported by Dan Johnson from Danny’s Meats, 1317 4 Mile Road, and Ray Stibeck from Route 20, 14001 Washington Ave, as a way to unite the city.
