"Transforming lives forever through feeding the hungry" is the first line of The Old Savannah City Mission's (OCSM) statement of purpose.
"Food has the power to literally maintain and transform life," says Reverend Jim Lewis, the Executive Director of OCSM.
The Old Savannah City Mission and The New South Cafe are hosting a "Cooking for Charity" event. Here is how it works: The restaurant is closed for the day. Guest arrive for a private behind-the-scenes tour. Come into the classroom as Chef Matt Cohen and Executive Chef Scott Gordon share their experience and talent while cooking for a good cause.
Guests at the event for charity will receive private cooking instruction and a gourmet lunch including the restaurant's award-winning crabcakes. Unique recipes will be taken straight from the chef's kitchen while proper cooking techniques, how-to's, and cooking basics are taught. All participants receive a "Certificate of Expertise" scroll during a graduation ceremony .
