The SB7 Coalition hosted “Thankful Thursday: A Feast For Fellowship,” a community fellowship dinner Nov. 16 at The Baltimore Dream Center in Brooklyn.
The SB7 Coalition, a community-driven organization, bringing together leaders from Brooklyn, Cherry Hill, Curtis Bay, Lakeland, Mt. Winans, Westport, joined with the Port Covington development team as partners for the event, ensuring communities in south Baltimore share in the benefits associated with the redevelopment of Port Covington.
Sponsored by the Port Covington development team, the event was borne out of ongoing efforts by the coalition to serve south Baltimore and bring the community together.
The event was catered by celebrity chef Robert “Chef Stew” Stewart, who won the Food Network television show, “Cutthroat Kitchen.” Also appearing at the event were Baltimore Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr, the founder of the Carr Cares Foundation.
Carr has been active in the community since he arrived in Baltimore and joined the Ravens earlier this year. In 2012, Carr established the Carr Cares Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization that aims to inspire young students to become proficient readers by providing learning tools and resources to help them reach their full potential.
Earlier in the day, volunteers from the Port Covington development team partnered with the Maryland Food Bank to host a “Pack to Give Back Local” event at the Baltimore Dream Center, where they packed hundreds of holiday meal bags containing traditional fixings such as cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and stuffing for Marylanders in need. These bags were paired with turkeys and distributed by the Dream Center, for those who would otherwise go without a holiday meal.
