10,000+ Meals Donated through 'Dinners To Go'

The corona virus pandemic and nationwide quarantine that began in March of 2020 led to the temporary closure of many local programs and facilities that provide meals to those in need.  During that time, when our business was on hold, we began cooking for those most at risk in our community (seniors, low income, families that were temporarily out of work, and even the homeless).  In total, we were able to donate over 10,000 free meals, thanks to the generosity of our community, through a program that we called "Dinner To Go".  

Although the Dinner To Go has ended, we continue to serve a meal every Wednesday night at Cornerstone Church in Brighton (reserve HERE). The donations that we receive from these dinners Wednesday night dinners will continue to feed those in need. In addition to our reserved meals, we always  prepare 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!
