Along with these feast items, there will be iced tea and lemonade available and dessert.
This feast is sponsored by the Town of Selma, making it possible for admission and food to be free.
The Soul Food Feast originated in 2018, created to showcase Black History Month. Selma Parks and Recreation’s Melissa Dooley and and the Selma Historical Museum’s Eric Jackson came up with the initial plan. Said Dooley:
“The idea of this event is to create a sense of community and celebrate the black heritage. It is meant to be by the community, for the community.”
It is estimated that approximately 50 people will come and take part in this feast.
Registration is not required. See details at www.selma-nc.com/soul-food-feast or call Melissa Dooley at Selma Parks and Recreation at 919.965.9841 x.8003.
