We ask volunteers to provide a hot or cold dish – a main meal (such as a hot pot of stew, hot pot of franks and kraut, lasagna, pasta dishes, etc.), side dishes (large salads, veggie platters), desserts (cakes, pies, cookies) and cold drinks (iced tea, lemonade, etc.). We are usually set up at 6pm and we ask the volunteers to assist with set up and clean up after.
