Feast of Caring

A simple meal of soup and bread. An evening filled with fellowship and love. The spirit of giving. These are the ingredients that make up the Annual Feast of Caring event.

Eternal Hope 2014 Honor CardThis year we celebrate the 23rd annual event of fellowship and support for Greensboro Urban Ministry and the twenty-sixth anniversary of the William Mangum Holiday Honor Card. We hope that you will join us on Thursday, November 20th, at Greensboro’s First Baptist Church between 5:00pm and 7:00pm, to pledge your support for the upcoming year and join us for a bowl, or two, of soup. A minimum donation of $25 or more allows you to select either five Holiday Honor Cards, or a piece of hand-made pottery.

Each year, the community extends their generosity and support at the Feast of Caring event, which enables us to continue to serve individuals and families in crisis through our programs and services that provide emergency food, rent and utility bill assistance, and shelter. By providing these services, our goal is to help them gain stability and an opportunity for self-sufficiency. This year, we were again able to partner with The Center for Visual Artists to host the 3rd Annual Clash of the Potters. The event provides an opportunity to showcase six local potters who generously donate their time and talents by competing for the title of Fastest Potter in the Triad and creating over half of the pottery we have available at the Feast of Caring event. Other pottery pieces are made available through the generous donations of more than fifty of the area’s most talented potters, as well as, Jim Rientes and the Potters of the Piedmont Fall Pottery Festival who selected Greensboro Urban Ministry to receive their generous pottery donations to support the Feast of Caring.

Greensboro Urban Ministry would also like to thank the Center for Visual Artists, First Baptist Church, the Greensboro Women’s Club, the Bobby Doolittle Band, and the many restaurants and faith communities who have worked to make these events a success.
