 Food Donations
 
We cook our meals fresh each day in a commercial kitchen. We are always willing to discuss ways you or your company can donate food supplies to us, as those types of donations help us keep our meal cost as low as possible.
 
Do you have a catering business that ends up with large amounts of leftovers after events? Or perhaps a bakery with product at the end of the day? We also can accept large amounts of fresh produce, frozen meat, and other items provided they meet the Board of Health criteria for food we can accept and it is not expired.
 
Please call us to discuss food donations at 812-232-3878.
