16th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Breakfast with David Beckmann

CitySquare (formerly Central Dallas Ministries) invites you to attend our 16th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Breakfast and Public Forum on March 3, 2011, at Dallas Market Center – Grand Pavilion.

CitySquare exists to fight the root causes of poverty by partnering with those in need. Working together as a community, we feed the hungry, heal the sick, house the homeless and renew hope in the heart of our city.

From the beginning, addressing the hunger needs of our neighbors has been at the heart of our work. In 1988, CitySquare began as a small store front food pantry. It is from this humble beginning that the work of CitySquare has grown.

The problems we see every day come from harsh realities. Texas has the 2nd highest rate of “food insecurity” in the U.S. and the highest rate of child hunger in the nation. We are hosting this year’s breakfast event in honor of the families in our communities that struggle to provide nutritious meals for their loved ones each day.

The Prayer Breakfast and Public Forum will give you an opportunity to learn about the problems associated with “food insecurity”, CitySquare’s unique response, and how you can join us in the fight against hunger. Together we can make sure there truly is FOOD FOR ALL.

When:   Thursday, March 03, 2011 7:00 AM -9:00 AM

Where:   Dallas Market Center (Grand Pavilion, 2100 Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, TX 75207)
