Dinner meals for Grassroots

As we come to the end of the year, let us cherish the fact that every day offers a new beginning to our residents, staff and volunteers. A new hope, a new opportunity, a new direction.

On behalf of our family here at Grassroots Crisis Center, we are sincerely thankful for your heartfelt generosity, humble service and for encouraging the values we hold so deeply.

Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season!

We are looking for community partners to cook a healthy meal from one of our recipes (see pdfs below)  – we will provide the food and individual containers, you would prepare and deliver the meal. If you are interested please contact Dorothy Howard, Kitchen Manager, at [email protected]tscrisis.org or our main business line, 410-531-6006, and ask to speak with her.

IN ADDITION, PLEASE NOTE THAT OUT OF INCREASING HEALTH CONCERNS FOR OUR RESIDENTS WE ARE ASKING FOR DISHES OTHER THAN PASTA (ZITI, LASAGNA, ETC.). AFFORDABLE OPTIONS INCLUDE CHICKEN CASSEROLES, SLOPPY JOES, OR ITEMS FROM THE PDF BELOW FROM THE AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!

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

*****

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:

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.

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].
