The Annual Heart & Soul Dip Dinner of the East End Family Resource Center is happening this February 22nd, from 11 am to 3 pm at the Roosevelt Neighborhood Center.
The dinner will feature home-cooked Southern comfort food like macaroni and cheese and candied yams, but might also feature dishes such as the “Presbyterian chicken,” which was a huge hit in previous dinners.
The director of the Carver Culinary Institute, Tom Grant, along with his students, will prepare smoked tomato soup and an aged cheddar grilled cheese sandwich for the event. There will also be some chicken casserole, broccoli casserole, noodle kugel, fried fish, ribs, and potato salad.
This year’s event will be the first to give out door prizes every half-hour. Recipes of favorite dishes will also be available for purchase, and there will be space available for those who are interested to sell or exhibit non-food items.
Proceeds from the Heart & Soul Dip Dinner will go towards the free after-school program, senior program, and other family activities of the East End Family Resource Center. For more information, call the center at (304) 344-1656.
