Annual Soul Food Dinner is set for next Wednesday

One of the oldest and most anticipated traditions in the City of Romulus is set for next week.
The 19th Annual Soul Food Dinner in the city is set for 5-7:30 p.m. next Wednesday, Feb. 26. The dinner is unique to the City of Romulus and is a celebration of the heritage of the community and part of Black History Month each year.  Dinner will be served promptly at 5 and the program will follow at 6 p.m.

The dinner is open to the public at no cost and will be followed by a special Black History Month presentation in the cafeteria at Romulus High School. This year, the theme of the dinner is Coming Together in Harmony as One.
This year, the dinner will be catered by the Romulus High School Culinary Arts Department under the tutelage of Chef Walter Banks.  Formerly, the dinner was prepared by members of local churches, who are still involved in the organization of the meal.
Monetary help is still need and every donation goes to purchase the needed food and supplies for the event, organizers said.  Free will donations at the meal will go to benefit Romulus Middle School and Romulus High School programs.
