For the 4th year in a row we are privileged to be able to serve Thanksgiving lunch to over 175 members of our community that have no place to call home. It has truly been a blessing to everyone involved each and every year.
We're doing it again and partnering with our friends over at Gathering Friends. They provide wonderful, home cooked meals, as well as many "life essentials" to our friends who live on the streets in Springfield, MO. They serve multiple meals every week and serve over 100 people at each meal.
This will be an extraordinary opportunity for single parents to serve alongside your children on a day when no one wants to eat alone. There is no age limit for the kids but I would not recommend ages 4 and below. Because of limited space, we would like our single parents to sign up to serve FIRST. If we still need folks, we will reach out at that time. :)
With needing to cook for that many, will will need all the help we can get to create that much food. ANYONE can help with food, you don't have to be a single mom. Here is a link to sign up for food items. http://www.perfectpotluck.com/meals.php?t=FIWK6774&welcome=1
All food must be fully cooked, ready to EAT (no place to warm this much food) and delivered by 11:30am that day. PLEASE bring food in aluminum foil pans for easy clean up!
