Corporal Acts of Mercy: Feeding the Hungry
Our friends at Faith & Family Live offer some of their favorite recipes and hints for bringing food to families in need of a little help, be it new neighbors, those filled with the joy of a new baby or those grieving the death of a loved one or struggling with a chronic illness.
The Church Ladies share the following hints:
*Use a disposable foil baking dish (nobody needs to worry about returning the dish)
*If you can, send paper plates, cups, and plastic utensils
*Label the meal, including reheating instructions, in case it is frozen for later
*Consider making non-dinner foods, like a breakfast casserole, or a lighter entree for lunch
*Make it easier on yourself- Make it a double batch: one for them and one for your family
Lent is a time for prayer, fasting, and good works. Consider reaching out to someone in need this Lenten season.
Do you have anything to add?
