Join the movement and commit to host an America’s Sunday Supper. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's vision of people of diverse backgrounds interacting on personal levels, America’s Sunday Supper encourages people to share a meal and discuss issues that affect their communities, to increase racial and cultural understanding and, to promote unity. Points of Light provides toolkits, a celebrity chef recipe book, conversation starters and incentives to help individuals and groups organize Sunday Suppers and service project.  http://www.pointsoflight.org/sites/default/files/site-content/files/cooking_and_conversations_guide_final.pdf


What is the MLK Day of Service?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"
Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.
The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
