Bring Some Canned Foods And Enjoy Good Eats And Entertainment At The Second Annual Feed The Need Party

Snowshoe, WV – Although the economy is beginning to show signs of recovery, many families still struggle to put food on the table each day. You have an opportunity to help fill that need, and have some fun at the same time. On December 12th, Embers Restaurant at Snowshoe will host a Feed The Need party. Laura Young, Coordinator for the Pocahontas Family Resource Network, explains what you need to bring with you to the party.

“Everyone’s asked just to bring $5.00 worth of canned food” says Young “and Brian Ball, of the Embers restaurant is going to open his doors with h’ors doeurves and drinks. And there’s going to be a DJ there.”

Young says all those canned goods will go to a good cause.

“All of the proceeds from that event is going to help the Pocahontas Parish [Food] Pantry; Bob Mann runs that” she says. “We did this last year and raised probably around 800 pounds of food, and we’re going to try to do 2000 pounds this year.”

Young says if they reach that goal, it would probably stock the pantry for about 2 months. She says the pantry is seeing an increasing demand for their services this year.

“They’re seeing a big need over there; they’re having a lot more families come in this year than they ever have in the past” says Young.

DJ Judd will provide the tunes and Embers Restaurant owner Brian Ball will provide the tasty treats. All you need to provide is five dollars worth of canned foods for an evening of great food and entertainment. The Feed the Need party is Sunday December 12th from 6 to 9pm at Embers in the Soaring Eagle Lodge.
