What if the price of your dinner could change lives? It’s true. On Monday, August 13, 2018, your meal at Blue Plate Kitchen in West Hartford will generate a donation to Beyond the Basics, an Urban Alliance initiative to help churches and parachurch organizations in our local community reach and serve people who are lacking food, clothing or housing so they meet their basic needs and gain greater stability in their lives.
Between 4:00-9:00pm, 20% of your bill will be automatically donated to Beyond the Basics, so it’s easy to make an impact.
With your support, basic needs programs, such as food pantries, community meal programs, and transitional living homes, will be more equipped to foster a culture that affirms the dignity and potential of each person they serve, connect people to support in the community, and implement programming that helps people further develop life skills to address their needs.
Just last year,
  • Urban Alliance supported 27 church and parachurch organization-run basic needs programs that helped 41,700 people gain greater stability in their lives.
  • 19 basic needs programs began connecting people to helpful community resources after receiving UA training and a toolkit of materials to offer acommunity resource center.
  • 163 people received case management services at UA-supported basic needs programs as they strived for greater life stability.
  • 23 programs completed UA training or grant-supported projects to help affirm the dignity, worth and potential of each person they serve.
So, bring your appetite and a friend to Get Stuffed for Good and help meet critical needs in our community. See you there!

“I’ve always wanted to do more than just give food. Yes, giving food is important but people have other needs, too. What I’m extremely pleased and delighted and grateful for is the fact that we now have this partnership with Urban Alliance…”
