    March Frozen Meal Prep:

    Beef Stew and Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice

    All too often youth and families in our programs go without food. We’d like to change that. Join us to prep frozen meals that will be distributed to youth and families when they need them. This is a great opportunity if you are an individual, group or family!

    The Link plans the recipe. Signup to bring needed ingredients. Please note that you can and are encouraged to sign up for more than one slot of ingredients. We can only make as much food as our volunteers bring so sign up for as many slots as you desire!

    Volunteers can also bring additional non perishable food for the food pantry!
