“We chose Union Mission for all of the great things you guys are doing for your community but wanted to focus on the Starfish Café because we’ve never seen anything like it. This is a great program that we see is literally saving lives.”
-Russ McCorroll, Producer: The TODAY SHOW, April 2005
Five years later and they’re still going strong! We were asked to create a few centerpieces for their annual fundraiser which took place at the Hyatt this past Friday.
Union Mission’s work with Savannah Technical College at the Starfish Cafe has saved lives. Through job training and their 20 week culinary arts course, Union Mission and Savannah Tech have changed the lives of many homeless and at risk individuals. It’s not hard to support that kind of cause. We were glad to be a small part of helping their work continue.
You can help too! Pick up a Starfish Cafe Cookbook and help Union Mission change lives “One Recipe at a Time.”
