  • KIPP supporters and friends are being asked to participate in a new culinary experience entitled “Little Bites: Big Impact.” The event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20 at Phillips Community College. The evening will feature “little bites” prepared by chefs traveling from Little Rock, Memphis, Tenn. and Mississippi locations. It also will feature student performances and a student-made gift for all guests to take home. “Little Bites…Big Impact” will showcase restaurants and chefs from around the state and the Delta. Each chef will present a “Little Bite” of their choosing for the event. There also will be beer and wine for guests to enjoy. Those attending the event will get the opportunity to sample each little bite, enjoy entertainment provided by the KIPP Delta choir and band. “The mission of KIPP Delta Public Schools is to create and support schools that empower students from underserved communities to develop the knowledge, skills and character traits necessary to pursue a college education and a life of value, joys and integrity,” stated Ev Kent, development associate for KIPP Delta Public Schools. KIPP Delta Schools currently serve 1,150 students in Helena-West Helena and Blytheville. Members of the Little Bites Big Impact Committee include: Lynn Chadwick, Julia Malinowski, Linda Lu Hargraves, Bettye Hendrix and Cathy Cunningham.
