Community Meals To Go!
UPDATE 4/28/21: $81,000 RAISED. LET THE GIVING CONTINUE!
WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT ONCE MEAL DISTRIBUTION WINDS UP AT THE END OF MAY, ALL REMAINING FUNDS WILL BE USED TO PURCHASE RESTAURANT GIFT CARDS THAT WILL BE DONATED TO OUR HUMAN SERVICE PROVIDER NETWORK FOR DISTRIBUTION.
UPDATE 4/8/21: THANK YOU COMMUNITY! WE HAVE EXCEEDED OUR CAMPAIGN GOAL!!
YOU HAVE RAISED MORE THAN $76,000 AND DONATIONS ARE STILL COMING IN! WE NOW HAVE ENOUGH FUNDS FOR MEALS THROUGH MAY.
IN THE FIRST 10 WEEKS, MORE THAN 4,000 MEALS HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED!
PROJECT UPDATE 3/11/21
6 WEEKS, 2,200 MEALS DISTRIBUTED!
The project is now supporting seven local restaurants and hundreds of families in need every week. The next couple of months are critical to our community's recovery. We are closing in on our new goal which will allow us to continue through May. Just $11,000 more to go!
Please give if you can. Thank you!
PROJECT UPDATE 2/18/21
TOGETHER, WE REACHED our initial goal of $50,000 in JUST 4 WEEKS!
Five local restaurants are currently cooking and supplying 350 meals each week for people in need. With what we’ve raised so far, we can continue to distribute meals at this level for the next 12 weeks.
And while that’s a good thing, a great thing, the need in our community is so much greater. We’re already having to turn people away before the meal distribution hour is up.
So we’ve set a new goal: We want to raise another $25,000 between now and the end of March to fund 2,500 more meals. We’re hoping you can once again help out.
