Upcoming: 'Bring Back Our Girls' Charlotte City Rally

Posted By on Wed, May 14, 2014 at 3:33 PM

When free food becomes a tool to raise awareness about an international problem, y'all.

Chef Kevin Winston II and nDemand Consulting are sponsoring a "Bring Back Our Girls" rally on Thursday, May 15, to stir up support for the approximately 276 school girls who were kidnapped in Nigeria. The rally takes place in Uptown at Marshall Park, 2 p.m.-4:30 p.m., offering free food, guest speakers and more.

"Our goal in organizing the 'Bring Back Our Girls' Charlotte City Rally is to make more people in Charlotte aware of this tragedy," said Winston in a press release. "The Chibok kidnapping occurred nearly a month ago, and the local government has done very little to facilitate the children's return to their parents. We hope that, by raising our voice, more people will listen and force the Nigerian government into action."

Winston owns Elite Culinary Concepts, which offers personal chef and catering services, cooking classes and more.

If you're planning to attend, make sure you wear red.
