A Canadian FoodGrains fundraising feast is planned Saturday, Nov. 17, at Zion Presbyterian Church in Charlottetown.

“Chowder, Chili and Cows!” will begin at 6 p.m. in the Coles Hall at the church, which is located at 135 Prince St. at the corner of Grafton and Prince.

The church’s senior minister, Rev. Douglas Rollwage, says the Canadian FoodGrains Bank is a top-rated Canadian charity that is based on the ratio of the dollars donated to the aid received.

He says many charities see only a small percentage of the donation ultimately getting to those in need. With Foodgrains, the donations are actually multiplied, says Rollwage.

“Working together with local P.E.I. landowners, farmers and sponsors, Zion Presbyterian Church, in partnership with the Foodgrains Bank, has been able to provide hundreds of thousands of meals to people in truly desperate situations.”

Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door on the evening of the event or they can be purchased in advance at the Zion church office. The office phone number is 902-566-5363.

“Chowder, Chili and Cows!” will feature Islandmade chowder and chilli, along with Cows ice cream for desert.
