Chili and chicken noodles: Two tasty fundraisers

St. Paul volunteers “pickin’ chicken”Two local organizations are willing to find you cold-weather comfort food in exchange for you helping them raise money. Sounds like a fair trade to me.

One is the 67th annual chicken noodle dinner at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 1356 N. Broadway. It’s scheduled for 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and features chicken and noodles made by the church members plus mashed potatoes and gravy, fresh-cut coleslaw, dressing, bread, pies and other desserts. The dinner, a fundraiser for the church, is $10 per person, free for children 6 and under. It's all-you-can-eat and is served family style. Carry outs also are available. For more information, call the church office at 316-267-3263.

The Wichita Airport Lions Club also is putting on its annual chili feed from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Sedgwick County Extension Office, 7001 W. 21st St. N. Tickets are $7 at the door for adults, free for children 5 and under. The meal includes all-you-can-eat chili, crackers, coffee and tea. Soft drinks and desserts are extra. The proceeds from the feed will benefit various community service projects.
