WHO:  W.I.D.E is a local group of women promoting inclusivity, diversity and equity in our community through education, literature and the arts. Due to Covid, most of the funding is going to updating the local libraries and classrooms with modern literature that includes multicultural themes and minority voices.

WHAT:  #DinnerforaDifference is an Italian style dinner created by local Chef Deanna D’Angelo (ChefDeanna.com) with food donations by Catskill Regional Harvest. Suggested donation is $25 per plate and features a Farm Fresh Salad, Home Made Manicotti and Meatballs, and Garlic bread.  There is a vegetarian option without the meatballs. There will also be baked goods to buy at pick up to satisfy your sweet tooth, again, by donation.

While the suggested donation is $25/plate, any amount is happily accepted and dinners can also be sponsored. One can pay for a dinner and we will get it to a family in need.

Donations go to purchasing books for our ongoing Diverse Literature Fund. We have already donated $800 to the Delaware County Middle School/High School library. We have another large donation dedicated for the Elementary school.  By exposing children to a variety of multicultural literature, we believe they can learn to recognize and address social issues, biases and assumptions in today’s society, both within themselves and the broader community.

W.I.D.E hopes to raise enough money to impact more children in the community through this and future fundraisers.

Order today before we sell out!
