Harvest for Hope, an annual gathering benefitting the Matt Urban Hope Center, returns from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Pearl Street Grill, 76 Pearl St., Buffalo.

The Hope Center provides a “one-stop shop” to help homeless and low-income families get back on their feet. It also includes the “Urban Diner” (in collaboration with Friends of the Night People), where free dinners are served restaurant-style, Monday through Friday evenings to community members in need.
