Interfaith Sanctuary has hot meals available during week days, but not during weekends. We are changing that. Boise UU is partnering with the members of Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel (CABI) to prepare, deliver and serve a hot monthly Sunday meal to the guests at the Sanctuary. This will be on the third Sunday of every month. We are encouraging other faith groups to do the same. Hopefully in the next year Interfaith Sanctuary will have a hot meal once every weekend if not once every day.
Food Sourcing
Shari, leading this effort, sources good food that would be otherwise disposed of from sources like The Rolling Tomato (saves food waste from restaurants and farmers markets) and the Idaho Food Bank. What can’t be sourced there is asked for by food or financial donation.
Volunteer Sourcing
It takes about 6 cooks and 6 servers to pull off a meal with grace.
