Third Annual Community Seafood Dinner at the South Kingstown Elks Lodge

Saturday, October 22, 2016 

Our third annual community seafood dinner was better than ever! 115 people joined us on the first cold night of fall to celebrate the season's bounty. Due to the windy weather, many commercial fishermen  were among us, and people got to meet and learn from the people who catch our fish. Proceeds from the event benefited Eating with the Ecosystem's "Seafood for All" program, which connects Rhode Island food pantries with local seafood.
