Community Meals is celebrating its ninth month! Our community work has been a labor of love, and we want to see it continue to grow, don't you? To build deeper roots and serve more folks in need we need your help! In case you haven't had the chance to taste our yummy food, check out our reviews here: http://www.umccollegepark.org/community-meals.html
Right now, when you donate for a meal, that one meal of $10 covers the cost for your meal and another person's meal. That's always been our model! But what it doesn't cover are the stipends for people in the kitchen. Providing meaningful work is a crucial part of what we do! And we need your help to keep it up and expand to include more folks in our program and get more high quality + healthy meals to the community.
We will be applying for grants in this next season of our existence and are dreaming big about adding more days to make and distribute food and providing workforce training to kitchen staff, and we need you to help us demonstrate how valuable this work is to the community.
Our goal? To raise $5,000 in the next four weeks. Approximately two months of stipends for those who work in our kitchen.
So, consider a number. Something you can give. Every dollar counts, every dollar says, "I support this work, and I want to see the people of North College Park thrive." And share this with everyone you know!
