The Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (BEOF) announced that it will host a Christmas Dinner on Sunday, December 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at Back Bay Gardens, 535 Avenue A. BEOF Executive Director Ana Quintela said the dinner is for those Bayonne individuals and families who do not have anywhere to go for the holiday. Tickets are required for this dinner, so that the organizers can provide the appropriate amount of food. There is no charge for the tickets. Dinners will also be available through the BEOF’s Meals on Wheels program. The meals will be provided by the Little Food Café of Bayonne, thanks to the financial sponsorship of BCB Community Bank.
Mayor Mark Smith said, “I would like to thank the BEOF, Little Food Café, and BCB Community Bank for working together on this event. This dinner is a sign of Bayonne’s generosity in this holiday season.” He continued, “All residents should be proud of what the BEOF, the bank, and the café are doing to help those in need at this special time of year.”
Tickets will be available at the BEOF’s main office at 555 Kennedy Boulevard, and at the nutritional programs at 535 Avenue A and 16 West 4th Street. Please pick up tickets by Friday, December 16. For information, please call Lori at the BEOF at 201-437-7222, extension 13.
