Provide, Prepare and Serve: This opportunity is ideal for family, colleagues, and faith-based or civic groups. As the title implies, your group will plan a menu for the date that you want to serve; then provide, prepare, and serve the meal. This is a great team-building activity that also makes an impact in your community.

  • Commitment level: Medium, one-time project with some preparation
