Dinner meals for Grassroots

 

HARD TO BELIEVE IT'S ALMOST THE END OF JANUARY - SPRING IS COMING! WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF OUR DONORS, PAST AND PRESENT, FOR THE MANY DIFFERENT WAYS YOU HAVE PROVIDED DELICIOUS  MEALS FOR OUR SHELTER RESIDENTS. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND EXTEND OUR BEST WISHES TO EVERYONE FOR A HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS 2021.

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! 

Many thanks to everyone who is signing up to support Grassroots with delicious dinner meals on a one-time and regular basis. We greatly appreciate your help in serving our community members in need as we continue to navigate these ever-changing times. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, time and generosity! 

*****

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.

Our greatest need right now is for dinner meals.

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: 

https://data.howardcountymd.gov/HoCoFoodGo/Mobile.aspx 

We will also accept donations to purchase meals. A dinner meal that we prepare cost approximately $150. Donations can be made online at: http://grassroots.hocomojo.org/donate/
Or you can mail a check payable to 'GRASSROOTS'.
Address: 6700 FREETOWN ROAD, COLUMBIA MD 21044.

Drop off times:

3:00-3:45 pm if food has to be reheated

No later than 4:15 pm if food is hot upon delivery

Drop off location: 6700 Freetown Road, Columbia 21044

Please note due to building restrictions for visitors we are scheduling all meals and food donations in advance to be dropped off in a safe manner. If you have any questions please contact Dorothy Howard, Food Services Manager, at 410-531-6006 or [email protected].
