BRUNSWICK — In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, local Democrats will hold a community pasta supper to support the Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program on Monday, Jan. 19, from 5-7 p.m. at Pilgrim House, 9 Cleaveland St.

Former Maine Attorney General James Tierney is scheduled to attend and speak briefly, and Karen Parker, chief executive of MCHPP, will provide a brief update about the organization’s work.

The suggested contribution is $10. Children under 10 may attend for free, and child care will be provided.

This is the fourth year the gathering will be held, according to Trish Riley, chairwoman of the Brunswick Town Democratic Committee, who said the nonpartisan event is “a way to bring all our community together to honor Dr. King’s legacy” and support MCHPP.
