The 29th Annual International Food Fair will be held at The First Church on Saturday, February 2nd from 11 am to 1:30 pm.
All proceeds from the event benefit Habitat for Humanity. As many of you know, The First Church in Swampscott was the first church to covenant with a local Habitat for Humanity affiliate. We take this commitment very seriously and with a great deal of pride.
Funds raised at this event will help build much needed homes, both on the North Shore and Internationally. Two-thirds of the proceeds of this fair will go to Habitat for Humanity-North Shore and one-third of the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity-International.
There are some very interesting projects ongoing in Peabody, Danvers, and Lynn. The food fair has become a highly anticipated and exciting event in the community.
We are thrilled to have a number of local churches and organizations who partner with The First Church to make this a continued success. Please come and visit with friends, enjoy foods from around the world, and take part in an exciting Silent Auction.
