On Tuesday, April 18, 2006, beginning at 7:15 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole Hotel here in Dallas, Central Dallas Ministries will host our 11th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Event.
Our speaker will be former Senator John Edwards, who currently serves as Director of the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at the University of North Carolina's School of Law.
The event promises to challenge and inspire us all.
I hope that you can join us.
After the breakfast, at 8:45 a. m., you are invited to join us across the hall from the Grand Ballroom for a public forum to discuss the increasing number of children in our community who are experiencing hunger and illness as a result of rising poverty. Chaired by Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, the panel will include:
- Jan Pruitt, CEO of North Texas Food Bank
- The Rev. Gerald Britt, Executive Director of Central Dallas Ministries
- Charles Senteio, Director of the CDM's Institute for Faith Health Research--Dallas
- Sonia White, Director of CDM's Nurture, Knowledge and Nutrition initiative
Our conversation will focus on the rising number of children who go without meals in the summer, and we will highlight the work of the Nurture, Knowledge and Nutrition program.
This summer, NKN will provide over 250,000 meals to children throughout Dallas.
