Gather your friends, family, co-workers or social organization together to cook a meal or provide afternoon snacks for our families through our Cooks for Kids or Pantry to Plate Programs. Your donation of time, energy and often food is essential to our mission to provide a caring uplifting environment for the families. 

To get your group started with providing a meal or afternoon snacktime, here are easy steps to follow:
