Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancelation of our annual international culinary fundraiser Global Eats.

Thank you to all of our amazing partnering restaurants and chefs and to our incredible sponsors for supporting our agency and an event that celebrates community and so many of the beautiful cultures represented here in the Ocean State. 

We are sad to see Global Eats canceled, but as a matter of public safety and community care, we feel it is the right thing to do. 

During this time, we would like to give everyone the opportunity to donate their paid ticket amount to Dorcas International in support of the vital work we do. Our agency is still functioning, and we are working hard to keep our services accessible to those who need it most.

If you would like to make this donation to the agency, please let us know by sending an email with your full name to by the end of March or early April. 

Or to receive a refund for your respective ticket(s), please call the online ticketing service provider ETIX at 1-800-514-3849.

Thank you to the following restaurants and their respective chefs:

Bellicchi’s Best Biscotti — Baker Kathleen Bellicchi
