Dinners To Go
DRIVE THROUGH STYLE DINNERS FOR A CAUSE
The corona virus pandemic and nationwide quarantine that began in March of 2020 led to the closure of many local programs and facilities that regularly provided meals to those in need. During that time, when our business was on hold, we created Dinners To Go to help feed those most at risk in our community (seniors, low income, families that were temporarily out of work, and even the homeless).
The concept was simple-- we would donate our time to prepare hot meals and give them away in exchange for donations. Those who could afford to donate for their dinner, would cover the costs of those who could not. By God's grace, and with the generosity of so many participants, the program worked! Since March 2020, the Dinner To Go has allowed us to donate over 9,500 free meals to those in need.
Meals are distributed (drive through style, from the north parking lot of Cornerstone Church) on Wednesdays between 5:00 and 6:00pm and can be reserved HERE. Starting July 14, 2021 there will also an Eat-In option. In addition to our reserved meals, we also provide extra meals each week that are available for FREE to anyone in need (first come-first serve, no questions asked, no reservation needed).
Thank you for your continued support!
