Superb Stone Church Chefs Ready to Serve Up Amish Specialties in Support of AACC Food Pantry
MIDDLETOWN, NJ - All Saints' Memorial Church ( The Old Stone Church), is sponsoring a dinner at their Parish House, corner of Valley Drive and Navesink Avenues, on Sunday evening, November 13, from 4:00 to 6:30, to support the Area Association of Community Churches Food Pantry. This independent food pantry serving patrons in the entire Bayshore Community from Sea Bright to Belford, is currently experiencing severe shortages of both food items and funds in advance of the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. After learning of this dire situation at their October meeting from member Lois Young, the Outreach Committee of All Saints' decided to organize the benefit dinner on behalf of the Pantry.
The dinner will feature a farm-fresh wholesome menu inspired by the famed cuisine of Lancaster County in Pennsylvania. Diners will be served Lancaster County Ham, Chicken and Wild Rice, New Potatoes Dijon, Amish-style Red Cabbage, Glazed Carrots, Rye and Pumpernickel breads, and homemade Apple Sauce and Apple Cobblers. Various local food stores and farm markets are donating many of the menu items, including Foodtown, Dearborn Market, A & P Navesink, and Panera Bread Company.
The cost of the dinner is family-friendly, with the charge for Adults being $10, Seniors and Youth (4-12 years) $7, and children under 4 being free. It is recommended that those interested in attending make a dinner reservation by calling ahead or stopping by to purchase a ticket at either the All Saints' Office, 732-291-0214 or the AACC Food Pantry Office, 732-291-0485. As long as the dinner items hold out, tickets may also be purchased at the door on a first come-first served basis.
