Thanks to the MANY of you who have cooked casseroles, baked cookies, made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and packed lunch bags, bought bananas and helped in so many other ways to provide for to our brothers and sisters in Boston. We have finished the first 6 months of this new way of serving the MANNA community, and realistically, we need to plan for 6 more months before we can all be together cooking again. Please join us in 2021.
The dates we will be preparing lunch for Manna in 2021 will be 1/10, 2/14, 3/14, 4/11, 5/9 and 6/13. Some of you have already committed to contributing in January—- many thanks. We are looking for a few Superheroes folks willing to commit to contributing in some way every month for the next 6 months. We are also looking for ordinary heroes— those of you who can commit to contributing something for one or two months.

Here’s what we need:
  • 5 families to make American Chop Suey Casseroles (pans and recipe will be provided)
  • 4 families to bake 25 nut free, individually wrapped cookies
  • 3 families to buy 25 bananas each
  • 3 families to each prepare 25 lunch bags including a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, juice box and perhaps a small treat
  • Driver- easy breezy and we will give you precise directions.

Specifically for January 10, we need:
  • 2 casseroles
  • 2 cookie bakers to back 25 nut free, individually wrapped cookies
  • 3 people to buy 25 bananas each
  • 3 families to each prepare 25 lunch bags including a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, juice box and perhaps a small treat
  • a driver

Please contact any of us below if you have questions or would like to help.
Emilie Hitron, Joanna Starr, and Ingrid Melvin. Thank you for loving our neighbors in this way.
