COVINGTON, Ga. - The fourth annual Farm to Table dinner, benefitting Action Ministries, will be held at the Oxford College Dining Hall Sunday, Aug. 11 at 5 p.m.
Action Ministries, a nonprofit, brings awareness to local children with food insecurities through the Farm to Table dinner. One in five children in Newton County are food insecure, meaning the child does not always know where their next meal is coming from, according to Katie Phillips, regional director for Action Ministries.
“It’s a great way for the community to come together to address a problem that affects a lot of kids in our community,” Phillips said.
Chef Jason Dumek and his staff at Bon Appétit Management Company will prepare the food, provided by local farmers. A cocktail hour will be included.
“It’s a fun time for a good cause,” Phillips said.
All proceeds from the dinner go towards the nonprofit’s SuperPack Program, which helps feed 400 children each weekend in Newton County during the school year. Each SuperPack meal has six meals included, ensuring children do not arrive to school hungry on Monday mornings.
In 2018, the Farm to Table dinner provided over 24,000 meals for Newton County kids, according to Phillips.Farm to Table dinner tickets are $50 per ticket and can be purchased at www.actionministries.net/F2T or by calling 770-880-1186.
