Foodie Philanthropy announced that they raised a record $70,000.00 in support of Methodist Justice Ministry (MJM), their 2022 charity of choice.
Foodie Philanthropy is a nonprofit organization with a mission of bringing together like-minded foodies for philanthropic causes. The impact made, both financially and publicly, when restaurants band together means a significant difference in the lives of others. Since its founding, Foodie Philanthropy has raised over $345,000.00 to help worthwhile organizations in Greater Fort Worth that provide a positive and sustainable impact on those in need.
The mission of the Methodist Justice Ministry is to provide light and hope to families who have experienced neglect and domestic violence by providing free legal representation and ongoing support to ensure that the children are with a caring and protective caregiver and the women can lead a life without the fear of violence and abuse.
Foodie Philanthropy supports organizations like MJM, which assist those less fortunate by hosting an annual dinner at various restaurants. To date, Foodie Philanthropy has supported Girls, Inc. of Tarrant County, The Women’s Center of Tarrant County, The Greatest Gift Catalog Ever, which benefited more than 20 local organizations with matching funds, the Hope Center for Autism, The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation, The Taste Project, and most recently, Methodist Justice Ministry (MJM).
Joanna Crain, Co-Founder of Foodie Philanthropy, stated, “We are extremely grateful to the restaurants for continuing to support this event and all of the Foodies that gathered around these tables in support of Methodist Justice Ministry.”
Melanie Hanna, Development Director at MJM, echoed her statements by saying, “The event was a huge success with over 400 participants dining at Fort Worth’s best restaurants before dancing to the music of Brad Thompson at Wild Acre Brewing Company.” “These funds will allow us to serve more women and children that have suffered unthinkable abuse.”
MJM is a law firm that focuses on a specific need – indigent women and children who are victims of domestic violence, neglect, and abuse. MJM’s support does not end when a judgment or injunction is issued. Instead, the staff at MJM continues to support its clients as they learn to live a life free of violence and fear and reconstruct their network and independence.
