Dinners To Go
DRIVE THROUGH STYLE DINNERS FOR A CAUSE
The corona virus pandemic led to a nationwide quarantine and the closure of many local programs and facilities that typically serve hot meals to those in need. During this time (when our business was on hold) we created the Dinner To Go program to help feed those most at risk in our community (seniors, low income, families that are temporarily out of work, and even the homeless). These meals were available at no cost to anyone in the community. Those who could afford to donate toward their meal helped us cover the costs for those who could not. Thank you to all who participated. Although we donated our time, your generous financial contributions each week made it all possible!
Over a 6 month time frame, we distributed15,000 individually packaged home cooked meals, nearly 7,000 of them were given for FREE to those in need.

Our excess food and leftovers are now donated to school aged children around the county.
