Jeffrey Adams is the latest Winston-Salem dining establishment to participate in “12 Suppers at The Center of Hope”, a year- long initiative of The Salvation Army at The Center of Hope Family Emergency Homeless Shelter. The downtown Winston-Salem restaurant will be catering the evening meal at The Center of Hope Wednesday, March 2, beginning at 4:15 PM.
Each month this year, a different Winston-Salem restaurant is being invited to prepare and serve dinner for residents of the shelter and the Residential Re-entry Center, a Federal halfway house also operated by The Salvation Army at The Center of Hope.
The meals serve several purposes, not only as a treat for shelter residents but also as exposure to possible job opportunities in the culinary industry and to raise awareness for The Salvation Army Center of Hope, the only Family Emergency Homeless Shelter in Forsyth County.
Jeffrey Adams Owner/Chef Adam Andrews says, “Being involved in the community and helping others who are less fortunate is important to me personally and to all of us at Jeffrey Adams. We can think of no better way to help than to serve a meal for 12 Suppers at The Center of Hope to support The Salvation Army.” Salvation Army Area Commander Major James Allison says, “Again the residents of The Center of Hope will benefit from the generosity of another great Winston restaurant. We are grateful for the blessing of partners like Jeffrey Adams and all the restaurants involved in 12 Suppers at The Center of Hope.”
