  • Home-prepared meals
    • Hot meals: please prepare a complete meal (main hot dish, side dish, dessert, etc.) for the number of women selected. This will help us ensure that all women receive a full meal. The meals must be cooked and hot. If you would like to provide a cold side dish, such as a salad it needs to be store bought (packaged and unopened).
    • Cold lunches: a meal could include sandwiches or salads with fruits or cheese with crackers; dessert is optional.
  • You can also donate a restaurant meal or arrange to have restaurant meals sent to our shelters.
  • Follow the food safety guidelines from Public Health, Seattle & King County to ensure that you are taking all precautions to prepare and deliver the meal safely.
  • Read our guidelines to help you prepare meals for a large group.
