Family (ideally structured for family engagement)

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Community Servings believes in the power of food to heal and bring hope. When we deliver these meals, we are bringing hope and happiness to someone who is critically ill, and to someone who most likely does not have any other human interaction all day. You are bringing them their food for the week, and you are helping them to live in dignity and health. Without our meals, our clients would not be able to have food to eat, and they would not have a Thanksgiving day meal. You will see through the delivery of these meals that you are making a difference in the lives of others and bringing a ray of hope and sunshine into their lives. 

DESCRIPTION

Grab your parents and pile into the car! Come help bring bags of food to the sick and hungry. While it is Thanksgiving that is upon us, many folks are not planning on going to a big turkey dinner, so help us give them food for the week and a delicious turkey dinner. This is a fun, easy way to spend some quality time with the whole family, and give back to folks in your community, making sure they have a warm, delicious meal.
