Men Who Cook, With a Purpose

Welcome to everyone who wants to support the first annual “Men Who Cook, With a Purpose” fundraising event presented by Nia Fellowship Baptist Church, Rev. Alphonsus Platt, Pastor, on Saturday, November 16, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m., at the church, located at 174 South Valley Road, West Orange, 07052.

Our event promises a day of good food, fun, fellowship and fundraising for the church’s Building Improvement Project. Needs include repairs to the sanctuary from a fire that occurred before we purchased the building, as well as improving the sound system, heating and cooling, door entry, flooring, ceiling repairs and windows. For more information and to help spread the word, you can download the event flyer.


We need chefs


We need men who use their culinary talents to make and serve a creation large enough for at least 30 sample servings. Chefs also compete for favorite dish in several categories as voted by guests, either as three-person teams representing a church or other organization, or as an individual. (The more guests you can bring to the event increases your chances at more favorite votes.) Chef slot availability is limited, so please download the Chef Application and return it as soon as possible. The chef deadline is Friday, November 8th. The application includes more information. If you have questions, please contact Larry at / 973.223.0420 or Joe at / 201.452.7619.
