Over the past year, I've had the pleasure of observing Christopher’s Eatery, a remarkable restaurant in Fall River, on its mission to better the community it serves. Unlike many establishments that focus solely on their culinary offerings, Christopher’s Eatery is dedicated to making a real difference in the neighborhood.

Owners Christopher and Nathan Silvia are exemplary community advocates, and their efforts have captured well-deserved attention. Their thoughtful gestures, such as providing complimentary fruit for kids after school and fresh cold water for passing dogs, reflect a deep commitment to the well-being of their community.

Recently, Christopher’s initiated a breakfast cereal drive, partnering with local businesses across the SouthCoast area. The drive resulted in hundreds of cereal boxes that have being donated to the Parish of the Good Shepherd’s food pantry, which serves those in need every Wednesday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Thus again highlighting the Silvias' commitment to fighting hunger and helping local families.

The Silvias' community spirit extends to beautification projects around Fall River. They have taken the lead in cleaning up the area and planting flowers, inspiring other businesses to join their efforts. Their next project, scheduled for Saturday, May 18th at 3:00 PM, focuses on cleaning up the lot on King Philip Street. Volunteers are encouraged to participate and will be rewarded with free pizza and drinks for an hour of their time. All necessary supplies, including bags, gloves, and trash grabbers, will be provided.

In addition to their environmental efforts, Christopher’s Eatery consistently supports local foundations and organizations through generous donations of their delicious cupcakes and baked goods. Their social media presence reveals a clear mission: to cast a positive light on Fall River and combat the negative stigma often associated with the city.

Christopher’s Eatery is becoming a cherished staple on South Main Street and New Boston Road, not only for its mouthwatering desserts, baked goods, and savory dishes but also for its consistent commitment to the community. Every day, as they flip their sign from closed to open, Christopher’s continues to make Fall River proud, one act of kindness at a time.

See Everything to Explore at the Children's Museum of Greater Fall River

The former Bristol County Superior Courthouse on North Main Street in Fall River has transformed over the last decade into the home of the Children's Museum of Greater Fall River. From exhibits that local families know and love to those totally new features that have debuted in recent months, one thing is for sure: This museum is a must-see SouthCoast attraction and we have the pictures to prove it.
