VILLAGE FEAST, SOURIS, PEI

WELCOME TO THE 
VILLAGE FEAST WEBSITE





To all Village Feasters:

The 11th annual Village Feast in Souris PEI will take place at the Eastern Kings Sportsplex 203 Main Street on Sunday July 15th 2018, serving from 3-6PM.

In 2017 the Village Feast raised 100,000. through the extraordinary efforts o

f the Join the Joy fundraising dinner held at the Charlottetown Hotel on May 4th as well as during our very successful sold out 10th annual Village Feast.

The proceeds from this event were used to double the annual donation for the Souris Food Bank to 20,000, built through Farmers helping Farmers, 4 school cookhouses in the Meru district in Kenya, provided 9 water tanks and one cow to the same area and also provided emergency food to the schools in a drought stricken region of Kenya. All this, together with the annual Coats for Kids funding and the new mothers cooking classes funding provided by the Main Street Family resource center in Souris. We are extremely proud of the work we do to raise these funds are very grateful to those groups who carry out the above mentioned projects on our behalf.

This work is funded without any Government grants and therefore is totally reliant on our generous sponsors as well as the most important people in the picture, you, who we affectionately call Village Feasters. A special thank you to all of you who have joined us in the past a special thank you to those who have been a part of the Village Feast since 2008, we look forward to seeing you in July.

Warm Wishes

Village Feast Helps Build a Fifth Cookhouse In Kenya!





Souris Village Feast vice chair Alan MacPhee writes a $10,000 cheque to Teresa Mellish, coordinator of Farmers helping Farmers. The money will be used to build a fifth school cookhouse in rural Kenya. Although the Village Feast goal is one cookhouse annually, this cookhouse uses surplus funds raised from previous Feast years and will be the second one this year. Village Feast Inc. is a non-profit children's charity based in Souris, Prince Edward Island. It supports local and global initiatives whose goals are to improve the lives of children in our world.
