SOUP FOR GOOD
Enjoy a warm, soup supper while supporting two great shoreline organizations—the Guilford Art Center and the Community Dining Room--at Soup for Good, Sunday, November 16, 4:30-6:30pm at Guilford Art Center. Guests are invited to the Art Center school to enjoy a bowl of hearty soup, bread, dessert and glass of wine or sparkling water. Each guest gets to choose their own one-of-a-kind soup bowl, handcrafted by Guilford Art Center potters. Bowls will be washed and dried for each guest to take home, “for good.” Tickets for Soup for Good are $30 in advance, $35 at door. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Community Dining Room, as well as Guilford Art Center. For reservations and more information contact Guilford Art Center at (203) 453-5947 or www.guilfordartcenter.org.

Thank you to the Feinstein Foundation!
Thank you to our generous CDR donors in March and April--your contributions helped the CDR receive an award from the Feinstein Foundation in the amount of $362.53. This award was part of the annual Feinstein Challenge to Fight Hunger.
In addition to the CDR and the Branford Food Council, there is another great resource for our neighbors in need: the Connecticut Food Bank's Mobil Food Pantry comes to the New Life Apostolic Church at 26 Jefferson Road in Branford the first Friday of the month at 10am. All are welcome.
