Project Description

Room at the Table is a multicultural, multi-faith, grass roots charity organization that strives to support charities that often fly under the radar (as well as high profile disaster relief efforts) while educating the local community. Dinners typically include a basic meal native to the target country, cultural presentations, and a guest speaker. Last year, Room at the Table (RATT) hosted a Haiti relief dinner and many NHS members helped out. On Saturday, March 31st, RATT will host at fundraising dinner for the benefit of Sustainable Harvest International and their work in the rural Honduran village of Piedras Negras.

The goal is to provide families with the training and tools they need to preserve tropical forests, while overcoming poverty through the production of healthy food. We are teaming up with the mission outreach group from Hancock Church. They have sponsored SHI's work in this village for the past 3 years and have traveled in small groups to work in the community.

Here's the crucial info:

Sat, March 31st, 6 – 8pm Pilgrim Church 55 Coolidge Avenue Lexington, MA

Guests are asked to make donations equivalent to the price of a restaurant meal.

The event will include:

Craft project for kids – making yarn dolls

Salsa Dancing

Traditional Honduran Food

Crafts for sale

Guest Speaker- The Founder of Sustainable Harvest, Florance Reed with slide presentation

We need help setting up from 12-1:30, help at the dinner from 6-8, and most importantly help taking down and cleaning up from 8-9. Once again, the last shift is where we need the most help.

Volunteers will be given a wide variety of jobs—we'll put you wherever we need you.
