Meal Team: The LFCN Meal Team serves those in need of meals while recovering from a surgery, illness, birth, or any other event where meals would help take away a burden.

Volunteers make and deliver meals as often as they’d like when a meal team request goes out. Even volunteers willing to pick up and deliver take out or a pizza are needed! Meal requests are organized and sent out online. Contact Russanna Cook for more info.
