OSWEGO – Canale’s Restaurant will provide the next Salvation Army Guest Chef dinner on November 13, 4:30 to 6 p.m.
They will be serving spaghetti and meatballs, tossed salad with their house Italian dressing, and bread and butter.
Desserts and beverages will be provided by members of the advisory board.
The dinner will be at the Salvation Army Worship and Service Center, 73 W. Second St.
There is ample parking and the building is fully accessible.
This will be the final Guest Chef Dinner for this year.
Canale’s Restaurant has been operated in Oswego by the family since 1954, using recipes that originated four generations ago with Anna Canale in Morolo, Italy.
They offer homemade authentic Italian cuisine, served in a traditional family dining atmosphere. Many of their specialties are also available in food stores and for sale in their take-out shop at 156 W. Utica St.
The Guest Chef Dinners are organized by the advisory board of The Salvation Army of Oswego County and offered to the community to raise funds for fresh-cooked meals and food pantry services in both Fulton and Oswego as well as other services provided to individuals and families in need throughout the county.
In September, the Corps provided 1,048 soup kitchen meals in Oswego and 693 in Fulton. It provided 66 Oswego households with groceries for 1,679 meals and 116 Fulton households with groceries for 2,682 meals.
It also distributed about 650 loaves of bread.
Seventeen households purchased low-cost foods through the Food Sense program of the Food Bank of Central New York.
The Corps operates a Bridging the Gap program that teaches life skills and gives a second chance to young people that have made poor decisions.
The first Guest Chef dinner for 2019 will be provided through the generosity of Rudy’s Lakeside Drive-in and is tentatively scheduled for March 20, 2019, depending upon the weather.
