Meal Train for Elliot St. Fire Victims - Help With Food Needed, Starting Today!


From Bethany Thies:

http://www.mealtrain.com/train/invite/1.aspx?id=R7TKvTbHB6I%3d

"The meal train link benefiting the displaced families of the Elliot Street Fire is linked below. Please share, add people via e-mail on the link and also share of your time. We are still looking for donations of food for today, Saturday 10/19 and tomorrow, Sunday 10/20. Help how you can! if you can not make a
meal, we also need beverages (milk, juice and water), fresh sliced fruits and veggies and dessert items. Please give of your hands and heart.

"For the sake of ease and the feel of coordination, we are setting easy daily menus for meal donation. The thought is that these items can be store bought OR homemade. So, if you don't have much time, consider a rotisserie chicken or frozen lasagna. Every little bit helps. The menus for Saturday and Sunday are:

"Saturday, 10/19:  Chicken, rice, vegetable or salad.

"Sunday, 10/20: Lasagna (meat or vegetarian), garlic bread and a side vegetable or salad

Meals for other dates are in the process of being posted on the Meal Train page.

"Please keep in mind, we only need singular donations enough to feed "a family of four." Our coordinated efforts will end up feeding TWENTY displaced people a day! Hooray!

"Meal menus for next week will be prepared and posted by tomorrow afternoon.

"Thank you for your generosity, time and help."

UPDATE: In order to better serve the displaced families, Bethany will be delivering meals directly to their hotel.

Please note the updated meal delivery address on the Meal Train website. http://www.mealtrain.com/?id=maociut722ft

We need two more people to provide casseroles on Thursday, as well as other things going forward.

Please note updated delivery times: Meals can be dropped off between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

We are also seeking corporate sponsorship for certain nights -- can your company provide dinner for 20?
