High school in Flemington hosts Dream Dinner
April 7, 2013 by Sarah
To help people who are homeless or who face poverty, the Hunterdon Central Regional High School in Flemington has hosted a Dream Dinner for the past few years. This year’s dinner will be the fourth annual event, and is put together by a student coalition.
Flemington and the surrounding area of Hunterdon County, NJ, is one of the wealthiest areas in the country as of 2012, but there is also a considerable amount of poverty and homelessness – the latter of which is due, in part, to the high cost of living in the area.
The coalition’s mission is to help people in Hunterdon county who have low incomes, struggle to get enough food, or face homelessness. It has partnered with Family Promise/Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) to sponsor the dinner.
Area businesses are donating food items as well as supplies. The menu for the night includes a pasta main course, as well as salad, bread, and dessert. Flemington brochure printers could be made use of to explain the mission of the coalition and the IHN.
The dinner will take place on April 16, starting at 5:30 pm and lasting until 7:30 pm. It will take place at the HC Commons on Junction Road. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children over the age of 5, with children under that age entitled to eat free of charge. Along with a sit-down dinner, people will have the option of purchasing their meal to go.
