Some volunteers and supporters also prepare frozen meals that we can reheat and serve.

Please ensure meals are prepared in a clean and safe environment, and contain food that can be frozen and reheated. Please avoid rice, and overly spicy/hot foods, and ensure all meals are frozen immediately after preparation in microvable containers.
