On Jan. 31, 2018, the Saint Joseph Academy (SJA) Feed My Starving Children group (FMSC) will host the first Noodles and Doodles spaghetti dinner and art auction event. The event will take place at the Middle Division Gym. The Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization which helps communities around the world who do not have food.
The goal is to raise over $20,000 to be able to host a mobile pack event at SJA. At the MobilePack, all students participate to pack 100,000 MannaPack meals to feed starving children in communities around the world. MannaPacks are 13.6 oz bags which consist of white rice, textured soy protein, dehydrated vegetables, and other nutrients which will help kids who suffer from malnourishment.
The Noodles and Doodles event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. As part of the event, there will be tables set up for the SJA community with paper table covers so that people can doodle on them while they enjoy their meal. A drive-through option will be available for people to pick up their plates if they cannot stay. The food served will be homemade spaghetti made by the SJA Parents At Work (PAWS) group and volunteers, with Mrs. Donna Barron’s secret ingredient sauce.
This fundraiser event will include a silent auction with artwork crafted by the members of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) and Dr. Rose Gowen, who donated a handmade quilt for a drawing. The Call to Ministry team (CTM) will also help as servers at the event. If the winner is not present, he or she will be called to pick up the prize.
The tickets for the drawing and will be available at the event can be bought at the administration office or through student representatives from CTM, SJA Rotary Interact Club, and the FMSC organizing committee. The tickets for food plates will also be available at the administration office for $6. We hope the SJA community will attend this special event to support our school’s mission of helping those most in need. If you have any questions, please call (956) 542-3581.
