Heating Stone Causes Problems

The to-go containers often go soft before they reach the clients.   It seems the heating stones were a major factor.  Experiments show that food stays hot in the cooler without them, so they are no longer recommended.  Putting the more liquid items into the round containers can help also.

Serving Groups Still Needed in 2017

After being provisioned for many years, the 3rd Friday of each month is available for a new group.  We thank them for their many years of service to our hungry community.  If you know of anyone thinking about forming a group, refer them to our web site  for tips on how to get started.  The web site also includes easy recipes for nutritious meals.  We will work with you to assist in any difficulties getting up to speed.

One idea, we are talking to several restaurants who can prepare the meals, if a new group can pick it up and serve it.  Think about whether any of the groups you’re in can take a long lunch to serve the hungry.

We served 2536 meals for the month of March!
