Flying Spaghetti Monster Benefit Dinner for Mid-Ohio Foodbank

Several Columbus Coalition of Reason member groups are sponsoring a fundraiser for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

Come help us feed hungry people in Central Ohio! Raise money and food donations for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank by attending a "Flying Spaghetti Monster" spaghetti benefit dinner on November 8, 6:00 – 9:00 PM, at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus (93 W. Weisheimer Rd.).

This event, an interfaith collaboration with local humanist, secular, and skeptic groups, will have a fun musical program. We will celebrate the desire to do good, help communities, and pursue social justice regardless of religious affiliation or the lack thereof.

The dinner will have a minimum donation per plate of $5 for children and $10 for adults, but you are also welcome to join us without eating dinner: simply listen to the music and enjoy the communal environment. We will also collect donations of canned/ boxed foods or personal care items. There will be a raffle and a silent auction; three donated items gets you a free raffle ticket. All proceeds will benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. There will be a science and craft activity table for children.

If you already have dinner plans, but want to help, donations can be dropped off between 6 and 9 PM. If you want dinner but cannot stay, to-go boxes are available.
