About this Meal Train

This meal train is for the children of the Orcutt club who attend here after school sometimes until closing. Without city funding there is no kitchen or food being served other than what we can get as a community through local donors. On the weekends, these children come as soon as the doors open and find a safe haven amongst thier peers usually for the whe day and none bring anything to eat or drink. The children also get homework help and do arts and crafts, play puzzles, video games and so much more. This place is a safe haven for so many children of all ages. Keeping children off the city streets inside doing homework, crafts, video games, playing sports and just having fun. Please help us feed the children. If you seen the smiles on thier faces, it's priceless. Or the child running up to hug you! It will melt your heart. If we all come together to help these children, imagine the greatness we can achieve? Food is a basic necessity and so much is wasted everyday at local organizations grocery stores and resturaunts. We need the food! The kids need food all day while they are here. If you know of any places that will gladly donate food please let them know about the kids here at the Orcutt club. All donations are tax deductible. I know my daughter comes home from school starving so I know the children who come here are too. No child should go without food. This club is in one of the poorest cities in CT and we need to come together to get food in here to feed everyone! Being able to feed the children lunch or dinner is a big blessing to them. Please consider helping if you can. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. These children truly appreciate it. Please share! If you can't cook food or drop off food, please get the word out there by sharing the link and tagging some All are welcome! Thank you so much. Please help me continue this through the months to come. Until the club can get the funding they are owed and deserved. Please say a prayer the club gets funding. If we do we can remodel the kitchen to make it usable! Then we can always have food in there breakfast on weekends, lunch dinner oh that would be so beautiful. I truly thank everyone who has stepped up to help. No donation is too small. We always need drinks, fruit, paper goods, healthy snacks, so with any donations received we can purchase these items or order food or get food in there on days nobody joins or signs up for a meal. I know it looks like a lot but 2 huge trays of rice or pasta go far. Thank you all so very much. If you have any meal ideas or want to talk please feel free to email me or call me directly We are also looking for more than one volunteer per night during the week. Even if you see a person has joined please email me we need more than one volunteer per night. Pkease email or message me with any questions. Thank you so much. Thank you so much
