Family Dinner (Donate)

Family Dinner is an opportunity for groups to build strong community while providing a nutritious, catered style, or prepackaged meal for about 30 youth on Sundays.

All meals must be cooked prior to arriving at the house and we ask the meals come in packaged individually. Leftovers are always welcomed, as some of our youth are food insecure, and prepackaged meals helps to make sure that they have a meal to take home with them as well.

Donors are needed to:

  • Arrive at 4 pm

  • Provide a meal for 30+ youth

  • Meal must include a main dish, sides, drinks, etc. and a gluten-free and vegetarian option

  • Provide all items needed to prepare and serve including; plates, cups, utensils, etc.
