Fill our family’s hearts and tummies with the gift of a home-cooked meal.


 

Our Meals That Heal program was created to help relieve our families from a night of cooking. Having a sick child can be extremely draining and with this program, we can take away the worry of “what’s for dinner?” Our Meals That Heal Program offers groups of volunteers the opportunity to extend needed support to these families by preparing a home-cooked nutritious brunch or dinner a few days a week.
