Anyone interested in feedback on the meals provided to families in our Hawthorne Place shelter? An overnight volunteer shared the following:
The families seem to love that people bring chicken but would prefer for it not to be fried. Chicken tenders however are always ok because the kids love them. Chick-Fil-A tenders are their favorites with a choice of sauces (they have a tray with around 28 tenders that is reasonable that comes with one large sauce but you need at least two large sauces).
They do not get pizza too much (so far), so if bringing pizza, keep it simple with one topping per pizza–cheese, pepperoni, sausage.
Nice surprises have been chicken pot pie/chicken dumplings, pot roast, and chili. There is a crock pot at Hawthorne Place that can be picked up ahead of time if someone would like to use it.
