PUTNAM COUNTY, Ind. (Feb. 7, 2020)—The United Way of Putnam County is partnering with Bridges Craft Pizza and Purdue Extension office to provide local families with an evening of food, fun, and family entertainment during the first-ever Community Supper Club.
Supper Club events will be held once a month with the aim to reduce food insecurity in Putnam County by providing residents with meals that are healthy and affordable. The first dinner will take place Thursday, February 27 at 5:30pm on the M2 side of Bridges Restaurant (21 N. Indiana St.). Tickets are only $5, while kids 17 and under eat free.
“We are excited about this opportunity to bring the community together around the table for a healthy meal. Too many of our neighbors are either going hungry or simply lack the resources to produce nourishing meals at home,” says Chris Flegal, United Way’s Executive Director.
“We want these events to lift up our neighbors and be an evening where families can enjoy a night on the town, while receiving great ideas for cooking meals at home.”
Supper Club guests will receive a three-course dinner that has been specially curated by the Bridges team of chefs. The monthly menu is created with three requirements in mind: each meal must be nutritious, all ingredients should be available in Putnam County, and the recipe can easily be replicated at home.
In addition to the delicious dinner, guests will be provided with each meal’s recipe, as well as resources to local community gardens and wellness programs. Live entertainment will be another highlight of the evening, with a special music performance by local artists Him and Her.
“Bridges is committed to serving a quality dining experience to everyone in our community… not just those who can afford it,” Flegal continued. “We are very thankful for their support in helping the United Way improve lives in Putnam County through events like our monthly Supper Club.”
Any family or individual interested in attending the February 27 dinner must first register for the event by visiting www.unitedwayofputnamcounty.org/supperclub or by calling the United Way office at 765.653.5638.
