NC Triangle Dining is giving away two FREE tickets for this community lunch! Details on Instagram – @nctriangledining
While the Triangle was spared most of the damage that Hurricane Florence brought to the state of North Carolina, we all know our neighbors to the east sustained a tremendous amount of destruction and flooding, similar to what was experienced years previously, due to Hurricane Matthew. A month after that disaster in 2016, the Sunday Supper came to existence and planned an amazing event in Raleigh as a fund-raiser for the victims of Hurricane Matthew.
Scheduled right after the 2016 elections, the state as well as the nation, was in great need of healing and community strength. I remember being stunned by the amazing scene put together by the volunteer group organized by the Sunday Supper. One thousand North Carolina neighbors broke bread on a beautiful autumn afternoon on Fayetteville Street. A fire-truck anchored one end of the Sunday Supper, the American flag hanging proudly above. And at the other end, lay the North Carolina capitol building, stately and strong in the distance.
A team of youngsters served up a delicious barbeque lunch while beer and beverages were provided by food trucks. An invocation prayer was shared before we broke bread and then we dug into our wonderful meal. Wow, truly a memorable event and one that I will not forget!
And if you haven’t heard yet, the Sunday Supper has an upcoming Come Together for the Coast community lunch on November 11. During this event, tribute will be paid to our first responders and veterans. Net proceeds of this event will be contributed to the Sunday Supper Gift Fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation. Given the same circumstances around Hurricane Florence and our upcoming mid-term elections I’m sure that this event will provide the same healing and nourishment for the Triangle that the first Sunday Supper did.
For $25 a ticket, you’ll be treated to a wonderful lunch led by Chef Scott Crawford and a team of chefs from local restaurants. And I can tell you that it will be an event you don’t want to miss.

Either way, I hope to see you on Fayetteville Street on November 11 for this very worthwhile cause and event. Check out the delicious menu below!
