Come be a part of something big and put smiles on the faces of our residents by serving them lunch or dinner! Serve a fresh cooked meal or come grill on our new grill, to the 66 residents we serve at our shelter.
We are looking for groups of up to six people, to cook a meal off-site in a licensed community kitchen, or you may cook purchased retail foods onsite, but they must be unopened and labeled (e.g. Take and Bake Lasagna, retail meal items like Costco or Simek’s). We are not licensed to cook from scratch, so we rely heavily on donated food and groups to bring in meals. 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 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. Masks must be worn at all times in the shelter.
Or, come grill for our residents on our new grill! Small or large groups are welcome outside our shelter to grill and serve a meal to our residents. Be sure the items you bring to grill do not contain any pork products and that they are properly chilled and on ice. Masks do not need to be worn while grilling, but must be worn while serving.
It is a fun activity and the residents are so appreciative of a community prepared meal. Lunch is served at 11:30 am-12:30 pm, so please arrive no later than 11:00 am. Dinner is served from 5:30-6:30 pm, so 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.**
Per food safety guidelines, all meals brought into Stepping Stone need to be prepared in a licensed kitchen. For any questions about what this means, please contact Tammy at 763-528-0380.
