Everyone is invited to make reservations to enjoy the Fall Booya fundraiser for Faith in Action of Cass County on Friday, Sept. 25.

This year the event will be curbside. Participants can pick up meals from 4:30-6 p.m. at Union Church in Hackensack.

Reservations are requested to make pickup easier. Diners may call 218-675-5435 to let organizers know how many servings to prepare. "Small" is for one person; "medium" is for two people; and "large" is for a family of four to five.

Booya is a rich stew, cooked overnight with several kinds of meats and loads of vegetables. It will be served with Linnea’s Organic Bread.

The meal is free but donations will be accepted at the door to support Faith in Action's programs to support Cass County communities.
