More Than Meals


In this time of uncertainty, many people are facing unprecedented financial challenges and food insecurity due to the pandemic. A generous donation from a local community member who is trying to make a difference has led to the creation of More than Meals, a program that provides delicious restaurant meals to people in need, while additionally helping support our local restaurants. The program launched with a holiday meal in December, and will be followed by a weekly program rolling out in mid-January. 


More than Meals will provide up to 2,000 restaurant-prepared meals each week to local residents in need this winter. Meal recipients will be able pick up their meal once per week at their designated time and location starting the week of January 18. We will notify you of your pickup day, location and time the week of January 11. If you received weekly meals on the previous Restaurant Meal Program last fall, you do not need to fill out this meal request form; you will be contacted by us the week of January 11 to resume your meal service.

At this time the More than Meals pickup program is scheduled to end on Thursday, April 15. Current meal recipients will receive an email in the near future with additional information. Thank you to all of the donors, restaurants, volunteers, and staff who have made this free meal program possible.

If you are experiencing food insecurity but NOT on our current meal list, please email and we will connect you with additional resources.

This “pay-it-forward” program was launched to help give back to businesses who have given so much to our community.

Our community is stronger and brighter with them, so we want to help them survive and thrive during this challenging time.
