MEAL PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Food regulations by the California Health and Safety Code have changed the way food is served. The entire meal preparation must be made in a COMMERCIAL KITCHEN (Restaurant, Costco, Grocery Store Deli). This project is still very feasible with the help of a few people to pitch in for the meal. If you are not in a Life Group and would still like to provide a meal, we ask that you involve your family or friends to help with the expense.
Bread of Life Rescue Mission is a non-profit Christian organization in Oceanside that feeds seniors, vets, families & less fortunate every day of the year. North Coast Church has committed to bringing dinner year-round, every Wednesday night for these people.
Meal Requirements: Plan to bring a to-go meal that is ready to serve and is COMMERCIALLY PREPARED. Please include a main dish, side dish and salad and bring enough to feed ~25 people. Food cannot be cooked at home an must be purchased. You are welcome to choose any menu you wish, and feel free to check out the list of easy meal options. Once the food arrives, the meal will be portioned by staff into Styrofoam boxes and given out at the door.
Dinner Time: Arrive with food by 5:30pm (really important!). The meal is served at 6:00pm. Groups will simply drop off the food during the Covid Crisis and will not be able to stay and serve. An on-site team leader will be available to help you as you arrive.
The Meal: All food needs to be purchased from a commercial kitchen.
- Side Dish: Pre-made casseroles such as mac n cheese, pre-cut garlic bread, deli made potato salad, pasta salad, and coleslaw are just a few examples.
- Salad: A salad mix sealed in a bag or box is acceptable. Please include a bottle of salad dressing and any toppings you prefer.
- Drinks: If possible, bring two (2) cases of water bottles.
- Dessert: Baked goods, cookies and dessert are always a nice treat. Two trays of cookies from Costco are always a favorite, or two large fruit trays for a healthier option.
People Needed: An entire life group may pitch in with the cost of the meal preparation, but only 1-2 are needed to pick up and deliver the meal.
Cost: Cost of the meal you purchase. Easy Meal Suggestions
Above and Beyond: There is always a great need for sturdy paper products, such as Costco’s “Hefty Super Weight Lunch Plates” (220 ct) and “Hefty Super Weight Small Bowls” (330 ct), and cases of water bottles. Donations would be greatly appreciated. All these items can be found at Costco.
