Yesterday, the team behind The Sunday Supper (an organization that helped families + businesses devastated by Hurricane Matthew) announced Now Serving, a NC nonprofit linking local restaurants with community-based organizations to provide healthy meals to hungry Raleighites.

Every week, local kitchens + restaurants (think: St. Roch, Mandolin, Hummingbird, PoshNosh Catering, HUBB Kitchens, and Ladyfingers) will collaborate to prepare two weekend meals for Now Serving. Then, local partners such as Meals on Wheels of Wake County + The Women’s Center will distribute the food to 320+ recipients in the Raleigh area.

To raise money for the cause, Now Serving is hosting its first charity dinner on Sun., Sept. 25 and we’re already getting hungry. Join chef + owner Sunny Gerhart at St. Roch alongside Ricky Moore of Salt Box Seafood Joint for a collaborative family-style dinner to support and celebrate Now Serving. Book your reservation ($75 a person) or donate to the cause.
