The volunteer group will supply the team members, choose the recipes, and supply the groceries. The Team will also need to supply the ingredient list and the reheating instructions. Helping Hands will book the commercial kitchen, give orientation to the Team Lead, supply the packaging and printed labels; then store and distribute the meals. Meals will be packaged in family size tin foil containers with cardboard lids. The day of volunteering, the team will cook, assemble, label meals, and clean the kitchen as outlined in the orientation. The meals will then be frozen and stored until distributed.
*One group of 4-6 volunteers can make approximately 15-20 meals in 2-3 hours with $200 of groceries.
*Assistance to supply the dry ingredients for recipes can be arranged to help cut down on cost. ie. canned beans, pasta, rice, & tomato sauce etc.
