FOOD (Friends Offering Others Dinner)Helping Others
FOOD coordinates meals for people at Highlands Church who are having surgery, facing an illness, welcoming a child, or living through other major life events.
Need a Meal?
If you have a request, contact us at FOOD@highlandschurchdenver.org. Once you submit a request, you’ll be asked for food allergies and dislikes, the best time to drop off meals, and any other relevant information. If you’d like, you can also include your friends and family in the meal registry, so that everyone is working off of one list.
Want to Provide a Meal?
If you’d like to sign up to provide a meal, email us at FOOD@highlandschurchdenver.org to be added to the volunteer list. Whenever there is a need, you will receive an “invitation” from mealtrain.com to view a recipient’s meal registry. There, you’ll find a calendar of meals needed. You can view specific information about dates, contact information, food issues, etc. and even see what others are bringing to help avoid duplication. Once you sign up, you’ll get an e-mail reminder the day before you’re scheduled.
Meals can be homemade or store-bought. Some suggestions (not required):
Freezable food is best.
Aim for a complete, balanced meal.
Make meals that are large enough to eat more than once.
Use containers that you don’t expect to get back.
