  Project Details:
Breakfast
Popular breakfasts include but are not limited to: eggs and bacon, pancakes or waffles, donuts, breakfast scrambles or burritos, oatmeal or cereal, or fresh fruit.

Lunch
We make lunch available for guests of the drop-in day center. Because of the numbers of youth vary from day to day, donations of non-perishable, ready-to-eat sack lunches are preferred. Snack packs are also distributed by our Street Outreach team when they are connecting to youth on the street.
Popular lunch ideas include but are not limited to: granola bars or power bars, chips or pretzels, cup-o-noodles, juice, nuts, trail mix, or fruit leather.

Dinner
The Dinners should include one vegetable side dish and one main dish at least. If you're feeling especially energetic you can add a dessert.

Donors can either donate food in containers that can be thrown away or in their own dishes which will be washed and made available to pick up later. The Landing provides the condiments, plates, cups, and utensils for their guests.

The dinners are served family style by the staff.

Popular dinners include but are not limited to: pastas, casseroles, potato bar, sandwich bar, chili or soup, vegetarian stir-fry, hot dogs or hamburgers, enchiladas/tacos, chicken, or pizza (if short on time).
