Come be a part of something big and put smiles on the faces of our residents by serving them a hot meal!
We are looking for groups, three people per group maximum, to cook a meal off-site in a licensed community kitchen, or you may cook purchased retail foods onsite. Must be unopened and labeled (e.g. Take and Bake Lasagna) and come serve a fresh cooked meal to the 66 residents we serve at our shelter.
We are not licensed to cook from scratch so we rely heavily on donated food and groups to bring in meals. We can have groups purchase retail meal items (like Costco or Simek’s ) and heat them here, and we can also have food from a restaurant brought in. Pizza Ranch in Andover will give a discount if you tell them it is for Stepping Stone. We can also allow sandwiches to be prepared here if the group brings the “fixings”- it is totally up to you. We provide the plates, utensils, beverages, and clean up.
It is a fun activity and the residents are so appreciative of a community prepared meal. Dinner is served from 5:30-6:30 pm. Please plan to arrive at 5:00 pm so we can get everything set up and ready to go. We ask that you plan food for approximately 60 people. **In the interest of respecting all our guests needs, we ask that you refrain from pork products of any kind.**
