— The 11th annual Share the Harvest Dinner on Sept. 17 drew a hungry and giving crowd to St. Patrick's hall.

Adrian Wendell is member of the board of Milford Presents, which hosted the dinner. She said the dinner is a celebration for a good cause, in support of the Ecumenical Food Pantry.

Attendees dined on delicious delicacies from local participating restaurants and businesses, including:

Frisky Goat Coffeehouse

Green Valley Farms Market

Harrington House Bed & Breakfast

Hotel Fauchere

Fretta's Italian Specilaties

Jorgenson's at The Dimmick

Key Foods Milford

Laurel Villa

The Naked Bagel

WalMart Milford

Waterwheel Cafe, Bakery & Bar

Zhang Mao

The food van parked in front of St. Patrick's parish hall filled up with donations from dinner guests. All donations went to pantry to feed the hungry, including food-insecure children.

"It's a great event," said Father Van Bankston. "It brings the community together and makes everybody stronger."
