LaughingFlock/Food for Life May 21

The local Christian women's comedy troupe LaughingFlock is performing Saturday May 21 to benefit Food for Life:

Food For Life is a culinary training opportunity for DC high school graduates who are unemployed and currently without educational/vocational options. Once a week, a small group enters a positive and supportive kitchen environment where they can learn professional culinary skills from trained chefs by preparing “gourmet takeout” for up to 50 people.

Food For Life also aims to connect these young adults with life skills training as well as mentoring and discipleship relationships so that they are better equipped to pursue their life goals, inside and outside professional kitchens.

The show will be hosted at Christ our Shepherd Church, 801 North Carolina Ave., SE, at 6:30 pm.  The menu for the evening, catered of course by Food for Life, will be a choice of:

Mediterranean: Chicken, Hummus, and Yogurt Sauce, Pita bread, Lebanese Salad (olives, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, feta, lemon, mint, parsley, garlic) fresh Baklava;

Mediterranean vegetarian will have falafel instead of chicken;

Quasi-Southern: Chicken fingers and BBQ sauce, Potato salad,  Cilantro-lime cabbage and carrot slaw, Fudge brownies.  

I'm not going to lie. That sounds really good.

Get your tickets here!
