I cannot make it
January Lunch
It is the usual potluck. Water, a plate, and cutlery will be provided. 

The theme is healthy eating so try to bring something healthy. However it is your decision on what you want to bring. If you bring a dessert, that's between you and your waistline!
January Speaker
Every day in Houston, there are nearly 90,000 children, or 1 out of 4 preschool aged children, who may not know where their next meal is coming from. Beth Harp, Executive Director of Kids' Meals, will provide an overview of the good work being done.

January Excursion
Volunteering is a blast! While in the Kid's Meals kitchen, volunteers play music, chat, laugh, dance, sing, and have a joyful time while making meals.  There are places to sit, and whatever your capabilities, there is a task you can do!

When: We will meet at 8:30 am at the clubhouse on Wednesday January 11. We will carpool to Kids' Meals. Alternatively, you may meet us there.

Where: 330 Garden Oaks Blvd. Houston, TX 77018

After we arrive, you will be assigned to roles either in the kitchen or in the packing rooms. Volunteers in the kitchen will work to make sandwiches and prepare snacks, and volunteers in the packing rooms will pack the meal items into bags to be delivered.  Some of our artistic members may decorate lunch bags.

Lunch is at Flying Fish, 1815 N. Durham.

Please RSVP now. Once we have the list of volunteers, Barbara Roberts will send further instructions for registration.
