In the Kitchen
Help fill empty kitchens with food to fill the tummies of families in need!
Ever get so busy you miss lunch, and later in the day your stomach aches and is rumbling with hunger? Imagine living your life always hungry, wondering where your next meal will come from. Now imagine how that would feel if you were a child… This event will put a dent in hunger for a school child, a family, or maybe a working single parent struggling to provide for their family. Your kindness and donation through the In the Kitchen event will ease the pain of hunger for some very special people!
Your guests will be given all the food, tools, and supplies needed to assemble Dinner Baskets, Lunch Boxes, and Chili Jars to be donated to a local charity; to be distributed to families in need. While the preparations are going on, music plays and our high-energy MC will keep the mood upbeat and give the guests an opportunity to interact and build strong bonds with their team.
Project #1: Dinner Basket Assembly
With this huge amount of hungry families, this couldn’t be a timelier project! Teams will receive a basket and a massive food assortment that make a well-balanced, healthy meal fit for a holiday dinner. They’ll also include a gift card for the family to use at the store to buy a fresh ham or turkey.
Project #2: Chili in a Jar
At the chili stations, teams will find all the ingredients to make a fantastic pot of chili big enough to feed a family a few meals. Their job will be to measure the correct amounts and prepare a ‘kit’ with everything needed for a steaming pot of chili – beans, spices, etc. Then they’ll add a gift card for the ground beef or turkey, seal it up, and decorate the jar to make an eye-appealing gift appearance.
Remember going back to school with your shiny cool new lunchbox? In this environmentally friendly event, teams will decorate a lunchbox using stickers, craft materials, ribbons and other supplies. After they’re done, they’ll pack them full of healthy non-perishable snacks. Add a note to wish a child success in school – or just humor him with a corny joke – and you’ve made the day of a very happy child!
At the end of the event, we’ll welcome in representatives from the receiving agency to share their stories, and you’ll present your gifts. And the best part is ~ the recipients will know that it was made with love!
