We are looking for help to make the food or assist with packing up and handing out the meals. Choices of what to make for food are beef or vegetarian chili and chocolate chip cookies without nuts. If you can donate food, please let us know the approximate quantity to help us plan. Food donations can be brought by from 2:30-3:30 so we can pack them up — the chili can be cold, as folks will be reheating it at home.

Many thanks to Willey’s Store and the Cellars at Jasper Hill for their generous support of supplies.
