ECAR Dinner: Food, Friends and Funds

On Thursday, February 2, ECAR hosted Chef Kevin Ray Archer for the Peace Meal Supper Club’s 17th meal! The dinner’s title was ‘Sanctuary,’ and the theme of the meal was to raise awareness about refugees as well as funds for Every Campus A Refuge and the families it hosts on Guilford’s campus. The dinner was a welcoming event as well as an excellent opportunity to support refugees and educate citizens in the Greensboro community! The dinner itself was a huge success with over 30 guests, and ECAR wants to thank all the people who came out and volunteered as well as Chef Kevin Ray Archer and his staff for providing a delicious meal!
