Twice a year, Ravenswood Community Services transforms its weekly Community Kitchen into the “All Saints’ Café,” a fine dining experience for our hungry neighbors.
Café guests enjoy the dignity of choice, with the opportunity to order a gourmet, multi-course meal from a chef-prepared menu. Entrée choices are inspired by top Chicago restaurants and run the gamut from fancy to exotic. Guests are treated to a themed environment with tablecloths, live entertainment, maître ‘d service, attentive wait staff, beverage service, and restaurant-style menus.
Volunteers are needed on the Saturday before each Café for food preparation, Sunday during the day for set-up and food prep, during the Café itself and for post Café clean-up. Volunteers must be at least 10 years old to work at this event.
