Not a one-time event, the Food Fair is many events throughout the year. Members organize a meal based on a theme or activity and the seats are purchased by other members for a set price with the proceeds benefiting the church.
Begun in 1999, typically we have 40-50 events each year held indoors and out, some family-friendly and some geared for adults. You might spend a day on a farm or eat an elegant meal high above the Des Moines skyline; take your family to a backyard movie night or try your hand at being artsy. The Food Fair also features a silent auction of food items ready to take home or be delivered at a later date. There’s a lot of yum and fun to go around!
