The much-loved local tradition of the smorgasbord lunch in support of Telemiracle has begun its plans for the upcoming month. Through its participation, Medstead Hometown Grocery allows locals an opportunity to show their support of others through the process of dining out.
The annual event raises thousands of dollars for a good cause. The charity itself is run through the Kinsmen Foundation. According to their site, the funds aid Saskatchewan people in acquiring special needs equipment and access to medical treatment. An opportunity to support local non-profits and shop local, Medstead’s grocery store holds a yearly buffet.
Typical turnout is in the hundreds, and at $20 a plate, the donations make a significant difference in the local charitable landscape. The 2018 Medstead Telemiracle event raised over $1,300 toward this charity of high esteem. According to the manager of Medstead Hometown Grocery, this year’s event is to be held on Feb. 13 at the local store.
The event is known for its Asian cuisine, and is slated to serve ginger beef and Chinese style pork and chicken. Desserts and salads are also featured, making this an easy lunchtime event for Valentine’s Eve. Through the participation of locals in this benevolent event, stomachs are filled and action is taken to better the province in which we live.
