Hunger for More
From February 13th to March 30th restaurants in the South Grand area have teamed up with Isaiah 58 Ministries and are donating a percentage of sales one day a week to Isaiah 58 Ministries.
Throughout the season of Lent, local restaurants are participating in Hunger For More, an initiative to raise awareness and engage the community around the issues of hunger and poverty in South St. Louis City. Each restaurant is donating 10 percent of sales one day per week February 13 through March 30 to Isaiah 58 Ministries, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit cooperative ministry.
Participating restaurants include Mangia Italiano (Mondays), King & I Thai Restaurant (Wednesdays), Cafe Natasha’s (Thursdays), MoKaBe’s Coffee House (Fridays) and Cini (Saturdays).
Shaw Neighborhood’s Mama Josephine’s is also donating five percent of its famous chicken and dumplings sales on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the Hunger For More event.
“We developed Hunger For More to educate others about the issues of hunger, poverty and injustice within the St. Louis community and throughout the world. This year, Hunger For More aspires to provide dining-out experiences for the community during the Lenten season. With the participation of local restaurants, this event will raise funds for Isaiah 58 Ministries’ many programs while informing the public on these very complex issues that affect the poor among us on a daily basis. We’re excited for the opportunity to work with the local restaurant community.” said Brenda Booth, executive director, Isaiah 58 Ministries.
“I’m thrilled to see a handful giving back to help out a neighboring organization committed to improving the lives of others. More than 50 congregations are committed to coming out for this event and that really says something about Isaiah 58 Ministries.” said Rachel Witt, executive director, The South Grand Community Improvement District (CID).
Serving St. Louis since 1970, Isaiah 58 Ministries operates a food bank and thrift store along with a Healthy Lifestyles program, helping clients adopt healthier lifestyles with free exercise programs, healthy recipes and cooking classes, lunch and learns, support groups and outreach programs.
