After church on March 12, 30 kids and parents from the Primary and Intermediate levels of RE gathered in the kitchen of the EcoVillage to cook meals for the Caring Circle. Families brought ingredients, and teams were formed to prepare the food. Families who were not able to attend dropped off ingredients in advance. What a wonderful collaboration of all ages this was! In all, 12 families and individuals participated.

The group prepared nearly 40 meals–lasagna rolls, chicken pot pies, shepherd’s pie, lentil soup, and mac ‘n’ cheese. Familes took the meals home to freeze. Now when the Caring Circle receives requests for meals, they have a bountiful assortment of homemade dishes for our RE families to deliver.

The idea came from suggestions at an RE Parent meeting earlier this year for service projects our children could complete. Thank you to the EcoVillage for the use of its amazing commercial kitchen!
