The Salvation Army has announced that Spring House Restaurant will be kicking off “12 Suppers at The Center of Hope”, a new monthly initiative at The Center of Hope Family Emergency Homeless Shelter in downtown Winston-Salem.

Each month in 2016, a different Winston-Salem restaurant will prepare and serve dinner to residents at the Center of Hope, Winston-Salem and Forsyth County’s only family homeless shelter. The first installment of this year-long project will be Monday, January 18th at the Center of Hope, 1255 N. Trade St. Service begins at 4:15.

The initial “Supper” coincides with Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the National Day of Service. Spring House owner Lynette Matthew-Murphy says, “We’re honored to support the mission of the Salvation Army by kicking off this inspiring new program, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to be of service to those in need within our community.”

Executive Chef Timothy Grandinetti comments, “Joel Salatin remarks,’This magical, marvelous, amazing food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell.  It leaves a footprint.  It leaves a legacy…’  We are grateful to share the Spring House story and nourish souls!  Our approach to progressive, Southern-inspired cooking is incredibly unique and VERY DELICIOUS!  Get yourself a plate…”

Greater Winston-Salem Area Commander Major James Allison says, “12 Suppers at The Center of Hope will be a wonderful experience for residents of our Family Homeless Shelter. Not only will they enjoy a great meal, they’ll also be exposed to a career path they may never have considered and inspired to pursue a job in the restaurant industry. We are grateful to Spring House and all the restaurants who are generously donating their food, time and talents this year.”

Also participating with Spring House will be Village Tavern at Hanes Mall, Jeffrey Adams, Providence, Quanto Basta, and the 4th St. Filling Station.
