We have a new monthly event and it's at a very familiar place. For the past three summers we have provided lunches for the Kids Working to Succeed program at All Peoples Church in the Harambee neighborhood of Milwaukee. In May, we served dinner for the St. Vincent De Paul meal program they host in their basement. Dinners are covered by various charitable organizations 5 nights a week and Toddlers and Kids on a Mission has signed up to bring and serve dinner every third Saturday for 150+ adults and children.
**Please see the "activities" info below for the multiple entry points this service project provides.**
PURPOSE: Cooking and serving food for individuals living with food insecurity. Allow children to use their culinary talents to act with compassion and selflessness towards others.
IMPACT: Children and their caregivers can prepare a healthy meal for their families. They will also provide freshly prepared food to the guests of the St. Vincent De Paul Meal Program.
ACTIVITIES: Food preparation prior to arriving in your home, serving food at the event, and clean up at the site. Hairnets, gloves, and aprons are required and provided at the event. If your family would like to bring their own aprons and baseball caps, you are welcome to do that. Please note there are several levels of participation prior to the evening!
- Families can sign up to prepare part of the meal and drop it off at a designated home in the North Shore area. (Email firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Families can sign up to prepare and bring part of the meal AND serve the meal at All Peoples Church.
- Families can join us to serve at All Peoples Church.
- Families can donate online to help us purchase supplies (Toddlers and Kids on a Mission picks up the extra food costs after volunteer sign-up).
