Feed the Community Campaign was started by The Beltzhoover Civic Association (BCA) in 2011. The Campaign runs April through November each year.
Dinners are FREE and held at Warrington Recreation Center, every third Sunday of the month (unless otherwise specified) at 6:00pm until
the food runs out. Each month the residents of the Hilltop are treated to a hot meal. Past dinners have included, Spaghetti, Fried Chicken and Salad O Rama. The kick off for this year is Friday, April 17, 2015, it is sponsored by Rivers Casino and
will feature a live jazz performance by Kevin Howard.
The biggest dinner of the year is in November. This year the date is Sunday, November 22, 2015. The members of BCA along with various churches,
politicians, non-profits and community members create a Thanksgiving Feast, with all the trimmings. Turkey, Ham, Chicken, Sides, Desserts and Drinks. Many of the people they serve are elderly, and/or low income and can’t make these meals for themselves,
or afford to. I am a previous member of this organization and am proud to recognize them for the great work they do for Beltzhoover and surrounding areas.
What inspired BCA to start the Feed the Community Campaign?
We were inspired after finding out that children that frequented Warrington Recreation Center were often hungry and there were several homeless people that stationed themselves at the bottom of Warrington Avenue asking for money for food.
Approx. how many people do you feed during a dinner?
We pride ourselves in feeding approximately 125 children, young adults and elderly from Beltzhoover, Knoxville, Allentown, Mt. Washington and sometimes even
visitors outside of the Hilltop come to get a meal.
How can we help make this bigger and better?
We always welcome donations, sponsors and volunteers. With adequate funding we would love to
offer a meal free meal to residents once a week!
