Beth El Feeds Tidewater
May 16 all-day

 

In May, we will again be delivering meals to the Union Mission in Norfolk. In order to give them a homecooked meal, we are looking for 15 families to each make:
  • 1 Baked Ziti 9X13 pan (keep ziti simple and not spicy. Also, ziti should be baked, but does not have to be hot when it’s picked up)
  • 1 8×8 pan of Brownies
  • Salad for 8 (Salad can include basics-lettuce, croutons, cucumbers, tomatoes) – please don’t dress the salad.
  • 1 bottle of Italian or Ranch salad dressing (or you could make your own from scratch)
  • Rolls for 8
All food should be prepared in disposable pans and include disposable serving utensils.
Please take pictures of your family making the food and email them to the Beth El office. A member of the Beth El Sisterhood will be in touch with you to arrange to pick up your food.
In addition, we are working with Gabi Rosenblum in her effort to feed the homeless in the Norfolk and Virginia Beach tent communities. She feeds approximately 30 people every Sunday.
We are asking for an additional 4 families to cook for Gabi’s effort on May 16th. The menu is the same as above, but instead of salad, fruit would be appreciated (especially oranges and bananas). This food will have to be brought to Gabi’s house in the Great Neck area of Virginia Beach by 11:00 on the morning of Sunday, May 16th. You will receive an email with her address when you sign up. In addition to food, large men’s white socks, bottles of water and sunscreen are appreciated. If you would like to donate these things without cooking a meal, you can deliver them to Beth El during normal office hours.
