Food is one of the strongest unifiers of people across the globe. For centuries, food has been used as a tool to welcome guests, initiate discussion, and share expressions of love. The CARE Clinic is hosting their annual Week of CARE dinners again this February to celebrate the love that comes from the sharing of a delicious meal.
The CARE Clinic, located at 239 Robeson St, is a 501c3 organization that has provided free, quality healthcare to uninsured adult residents of Cumberland and surrounding counties since 1993.
The clinic is run primarily by volunteers and offers a variety of services including primary care, simple dental extractions, diagnostic testing, and outside referrals to specialists. All these services are possible due to community support and grants.
Events like the Week of CARE provide financial stability for the clinic while also celebrating the connection with the community that makes all of this work possible.
This year’s Week of CARE Dinners is scheduled to run from Feb. 3rd through the 10th. The clinic is partnering with three local restaurants during the week that are offering take-home meals that each feed approximately 6 people.
These restaurants include Luigi’s Italian Chophouse & Bar, Dorothy’s Catering 2, and The Coffee Scene. Each meal comes with an entrée and a variety of sides. This event takes place every year on the week prior to Valentine’s Day.
It is a time of year to celebrate love, and this event encourages sharing that love through good food, gathering with friends, and supporting local businesses.
The CARE Clinic will be taking meal orders until Jan. 26th. Each meal is $175 and can be picked up on any select night of your choosing during the week.
