Greek food on the menu at church fundraiser

Wichitans will have the chance to indulge in Greek food this weekend at a church fundraiser dinner that’s been on hiatus for a few years.

The Holy Trinity Church Greek Orthodox Church at 805 N. Dellrose in Wichita is putting on its Greek Festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Diners can choose from two platters — one featuring souvlaki, which is a pork shishkabob, and one featuring pastitsio, a rich Greek lasagna that is one of my favorite foods ever. Each platter costs $12 and comes with a variety of sides.

There will also be baklava and other desserts, and visitors can buy some items a la carte.

The small church last put on ┬áthe dinner around 2007, but recently, it’s brought on a full-time priest and is trying to grow in size. A committee decided that bringing back the food festival would be a good start.

It’s an appetizer for another popular church fundraiser — the annual St. George Orthodox Christian Church’s Lebanese Dinner and Food Sale. This year’s is coming up Oct. 12 and 13.
