The Honey Brook Food Pantry (HBFP) announces its Dinner to Combat Hunger on April 7 from 6:30-9:30 pm at the Forks of the Brandywine EPC. This year’s event promises to be an entertaining and informative evening. We’ll learn more about the impact of hunger from guest speaker Steveanna Wynn and gain the perspective of some who personally experience our program.
Last year’s dinner was a near sell-out and tickets can now be reserved online at www.honeybrookfoodpantry.org. RSVP deadline is March 1. Proceeds help to provide the critical financial support necessary to stock the HBFP shelves with quality food and stimulate food independence.
