The 6th annual Taste of James Island is April 29th!
The Taste of James Island is an event held by the James Island Outreach, with the efforts to raise money and collect nonperishable foods for the James Island Outreach Food Pantry, to benefit families in need on James Island. Admission to this event is a just a nonperishable food item! Events include cooking competition, activities for children, live music, raffles, and incredible food!
James Island outreach is a nonprofit agency that provides support through donations of time food and funds by churches, business and individuals and is governed by a local board of directors made up of supporting churches representatives and citizens in the community.James Island outreach was put together by local for locals, as a place where families and individuals who are in a crisis can go to receive care, help, and compassion!
This group came together after Hurricane Hugo hit in 1989, and left many people without homes and struggling. Local churches saw the crisis as an opportunity to come together to make sure that everyone had the support that they needed to get through that difficult time.
After the hurricane, they realized the need for a community focused group was still an important necessity and for the past 27 years has continued to provide support throughout the community. Today James Island Outreach provides people with emergency food, medicine, utility assistance, information, and referrals.
The Taste of James Island is just one of the many things James Island Outreach does to assist in expanding their programs and offerings to the James Island community.
This year we are honored to be proud sponsors along with the Kicken Chicken, Muddy Watters Coffee Bar and more! We are so excited to be a part of this great event and cannot wait to go out and have some fun!
We hope you can come out and join us April 29th 11am-3pm at the First Baptist Athletic Dept- Practice Field, 2051 George L. Griffth Blvd., on the corner of Riverland Drive and George Griffth.
