Dinner with a difference caters to vegetable lovers

A DINNER with a difference will be held in Stanthorpe to raise funds for drought-stricken Aussie farmers.

The Stanthorpe Seventh-day Adventist Church will host a healthy buffet dinner featuring a wide variety of plant-based wholefood dishes.

Organiser David Entermann said the dinner would interest to anyone looking for a colourful plate of protective phytonutrients.

"With the majority of Australians not getting the recommended daily serves of vegetables and fruit in their diet, this dinner will help anyone wanting to push back at processed food and empty calories.

"We know that what we eat is a predictive lifestyle risk factor with potential to either cause or prevent the majority of chronic diseases.”

The church is committed to inspiring people to live healthier, more connected and more meaningful lives.

Funds raised will be donated to ADRA Australia.

The Adventist Development & Relief Agency is an international humanitarian agency operated by the church.

The event coincides with ADRA's annual doorknock appeal #knocktober.

Recipes for all dishes will be available on the night.

RSVP or inquiries to Lisa on 0438 371 982.

The dinner will start at 5:30pm on Sunday, October 21 at the SDA Church Hall, 240 Caves Road.

Adults $20 kids $10 and families $50 - under 5 free.

An auction of donated goods will follow the dinner.

Contributions welcome on the day!
