The Frank Presents the Feed Your Soul Finale Celebration


The Frank presents the Feed Your Soul finale celebration on Saturday, November 18 from 10 a.m. to noon on the plaza of the Charles F. Dodge City Center, 601 City Center Way in Pembroke Pines. Admission is free and a complimentary breakfast will be provided by Trader Joes.

The Feed Your Soul initiative, which highlights food insecurity and social isolation, concludes with electrifying performances by local artists that include a drum circle by Just Add Rhythm, Inc., interactive art activities led by Alex Vahan of Cushy Gigs and spoken-word and custom poems by Marie Whitman. Local residents, who participated in a six-week workshop with storyteller Matt Stabile, also will take the stage to convey their poignant personal stories of food insecurity and social isolation.

Feed Your Soul was a partnership between The Frank, Feeding South Florida and the City of Pembroke Pines and was made possible by the following funds of the Community Foundation of Broward: R.J. and Nancy Purdy Fund, Helen and Frank Stoykov Charitable Endowment Fund, Mary and Alex Mackenzie Community Impact Fund.

“Feed You Soul has been such a success in bringing residents together to tackle serious challenges that our community faces,” said Joshua Carden, chief curator of The Frank. “We are excited to have our residents bring to life food insecurity and social isolation based on what they’ve learned in Matt’s workshop. We hope everyone who attends will be inspired by what they see, hear and feel as we spread this very important message.”
