Dinner meals for Grassroots

 It’s hard to believe we are halfway through 2021! The month of June brings laughter, joy and excitement for the future, especially now that we’ve overcome so many obstacles related to the pandemic. This is a bright and cheerful time when flowers are blooming, families gather for reunions, weddings, graduations, vacations and special events. For the Grassroots shelter it is a time of new beginnings as we welcome new residents following the successful moves of 10 households last month. Key ingredients for settling in their temporary home are your delicious dinner meals that provide much-needed nutrition and comfort, prepared with thoughtfulness and generous hearts. Howard County community members are the best – thank you for your support!

FYI - WE ARE SIGNING OFF ON SERVICE HOURS FOR STUDENTS WHO PREPARE AND DELIVER MEALS IF THEY PROVIDE THEIR OWN TIMESHEET.

PLEASE SEE SUGGESTED MENU ITEMS BELOW AS WE STILL HAVE AN OVERABUNDANCE OF LASAGNA AND LIMITED STORAGE SPACE.  THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING! 

*****

Grassroots provides three meals daily for up to 50 shelter residents in our on-site commercial kitchen. We rely heavily on community support to feed our residents.

You can help by preparing a fully cooked meal or entrée to serve about 50 people. Meals can be prepared with your own ingredients or purchased. For example, rotisserie chickens are helpful to have on hand (we would need 12 to make a meal).

If frozen, you may deliver your meal in advance of your chosen date.

If you would like to support a local restaurant through carryout or delivery to Grassroots here is a link to a list of local restaurants, the cost can range from $150-$500:
