Grassroots, Howard County’s 24-hour crisis intervention center and shelter for the homeless, depends upon the community to help provide dinner meals for its 50 residents.
Many generous individuals and groups prepare and deliver food on a regular schedule, and the meal calendar is often filled. During the summer months, however, vacations impact meal donations. The calendar for July and August is nearly empty, and Grassroots is looking for volunteer cooks to help out.
Meals are especially needed for weekdays. Most popular meals are fried chicken (100 pieces feed everyone), chicken casseroles, spaghetti and meatballs, and pizza (12 large pizzas, any toppings, are needed for a meal). For questions or to schedule a meal donation, please contact kitchen staff at 410-531-6006 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donors can also contribute cash. A donation of $150 will buy dinner for everyone. Mail a contribution to Grassroots, 6700 Freetown Road, Columbia, MD, 21044.
