WESTMINSTER, MD (April 5, 2018) — The Carroll County community will receive a tasty treat this spring at Brass Hat Café’s upcoming Community Spring Fling Cookout.

Since opening its doors in April 2017, The Salvation Army’s complimentary bistro, Brass Hat Café, has provided more than 11,000 free, hot meals to over 2,000 households in Westminster.

To celebrate their opening year, Brass Hat Café, located at 300 Hahn Road, Westminster, MD 21157, will host their Community Spring Fling Cookout on Wednesday, April 18 at 4:30pm. Guests will enjoy a free, outdoor BBQ, along with refreshments, prizes, and games for kids.

“We wanted to do something different and exciting to celebrate Brass Hat Café’s one-year anniversary. The cookout is an opportunity for our customers and supporters to celebrate us, as well as a fun way to introduce our program to new people.” – Nina Christian, Unit Director.

With limited options to evening meal centers in Westminster, Brass Hat Café was designed to bridge that gap for people in need, no questions asked.

Brass Hat Café is open every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, from 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm.  To learn more about Brass Hat Café, please call 410-876-9358 or visit
