The Jackson Foodies are bringing our passion for food and fellowship to our love for serving others.  We want to provide a dignified dining experience with compassionate service. 

From the folks who began the #EatJxn #ThinkJxn #ShopJxn movement in Jackson, Mississippi, we would LOVE your support of our next campaign: #FeedJxn: Dining with Dignity Pop Up Restaurant on November 20, 2016 in conjunction with National Homelessness and Hunger Awareness Week.
10166633_1459029640.5656_funddescriptionWe plan to provide a 5 star dining experience to nearly two hundred "customers" from Jackson's homeless community featuring some of Mississippi's most notable Chefs.

There will be no lines, there will be no lunch trays - our customers will receive a dining experience like no other, and leave with their hearts full and souls fed. There will be great table-side conversations, outstanding food, live entertainment, and exceptional service. Help us turn this concept into a reality, today.

I'm happy to report: our theme of "choices" and "dignity" will not end after our Dining with Dignity Event. We are glad to share some GREAT NEWS! The Word Center and Sister Cooks have provided Gift Cards to an area restaurant easily accessible to our customers. They will be able to dine as they choose, when they choose.

I do have people asking about being a server for the night. We are going to need plenty I would guess as well as back of house help with dishes and such. Should I put them in contact with you Carlyn?
