Urban Ministry is pleased to present WE Eat Together, a celebration of food, fellowship, and community. The WE Eat Fundraiser is returning with an array of amazing foods from the chefs and apprentices of WE Cafe, live jazz and fun with friends against the beautiful backdrop of downtown Birmingham.
WE Eat will be held on Thursday, May 23, 2019, from 5:30 - 8 p.m. on the stunning rooftop of the Kress Building located at 30119th Street North, Birmingham, AL. The cost of tickets is $55. Block tickets and sponsorships can be purchased by organizations and individuals by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
#WEEat2019 benefits the healthy living workforce programs of Urban Ministry, including WE Community Gardens, an urban oasis in the midst of a food desert where young men are trained and employed through Urban Ministry's Workforce and Life Skills Program (WE Work) as apprentices in areas of gardening, composting, and beekeeping. The interns sell the fresh, affordable produce at two local markets or give to senior citizens in need.
The annual event also benefits WE Cafe, a pay-as-you-can, social enterprise café in the heart of West End which feeds more than 250 people each week from all walks of life, and employs additional apprentices to train in the fields of culinary arts and hospitality while increasing their economic opportunity and professional development.
