Dinner in the Streets Returns to Birmingham August 30th

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (July 12, 2022) – Community dining and fellowship returns to Birmingham after a nearly three-year hiatus. Dinner in the Streets, sponsored by The Salvation Army Greater Birmingham’s Echelon Junior Advisory Board, will return under the lights of The Magic City, Tuesday, August 30, 2022, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Dinner in the streets first offered its “open-air” dining experience to neighbors in 2018, with the inaugural event being held in the historic Avondale community. In 2019, the event, which raises awareness about the daily programs offered at The Center of Hope, relocated to First Avenue South, between 14th and 16th Streets South, adjacent Railroad Park and Regions Field.

This year, Dinner in the Streets has partnered with storied Michael’s Restaurant, to deliver a fine dining experience, nestled in Michael’s courtyard at 1525 First Avenue South Birmingham, AL 35233. A special reception will be held in the upstairs patio, including musical performances by international touring and recording artist, Clinton Babers.

Area Commander and Corps Officer, Major Robert Lyle, said, “The Center of Hope is just that-a place that shares HOPE, spreads HOPE, and provides HOPE to the people we serve. That is why it’s important for us to share the work of the Salvation Army, and the lives that we’re impacting with God’s help.”

Please save the date, and join us by wearing RED, The Salvation Army’s signature color.
