September Dinner Recap

Our September dinner was sponsored by the Chosun Taekwondo Leadership Academy.  We served Chicken Enchiladas, Black Beans and Rice, Salad, Bread and Dessert.  Thank you to all of the Leadership Academy members and their parents who came to help with the dinner.

Upcoming October Dinner

Our October 19, 2012 dinner is being sponsored by CJ's Country Market in Pine Island.  The dinner will consist of Lasagna, Salad, Bread and Dessert.
The Warwick Community Kitchen relies on sponsors, volunteers and donations in order to provide free meals to anyone who would like them.  Our partnership with Vision Community Church provides the WCK with a kitchen to cook the food in and the space to hold the dinners.  If you are a member of a group that would like to sponsor a dinner or an individual that would like to volunteer or make a donation, please click on the following link, scroll down past the "Needs" list and fill out and then submit the interest form.  http://warwickcommunitykitchen.weebly.com/donations-and-volunteering.html

Donations Needed
We are planning for our December 2012 dinner as well.  Victoria would like to have another toy drive for all the children that attend our dinners.  Last year we had about 75 children attend our December dinner.  A bilingual Santa Claus came and delivered the toys to the children and will be doing so again.  If you would like to donate a toy please email us at warwickcommunitykitchen@gmail.com and let us know.  The toy should be delivered wrapped and labeled with the gender and appropriate age for the gift.  

New Girl Scout Troop Starting

We will be starting a Girl Scout Troop at our monthly dinners.  All girls in grades K-12 are invited to join the troop.  Troop meetings will occur during the montly dinners.  We are looking for assistance from anyone who is bi-lingual to come and assist us with the meetings in a translation capacity.  If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Carrie at warwickcommunitykitchen@gmail.com.

Our First Anniversary Celebration

Please join us on November 16, 2012 for our First Anniversary Celebration Dinner.  We will be having a full Thanksgiving dinner and celebrating with a cake!!  There will be face painting and other surprises and fun events going on.  

Clothing Closet

The members of Vision Community Church decided to collect blankets and coats to offer at the first dinner.  Victoria ran with that idea and it expanded to clothing, coats, shoes, blankets, books, toys, toiletries and home goods.  Out of that the Clothing Closet was born.  Run by members of Vision Church, they are open on Thursday 10:00-1:00, Saturday 10:00-1:00, Sunday 11:30-1:00 and during every WCK dinner.  The items of the Clothing Closet are free of charge.  In an effort to support this ministry, Vision Church has also opened the Hope Chest, a thrift store where designer brand items can be purchased.  The Hope Chest is open at the same time as the Clothing Closet but not during the WCK dinners.

Girl Scouts Rebecca and Barrett's Upcoming Dinner Plans

At the October 19 dinner Rebecca will be serving Chicken Parm Bites, another recipe from the cook book she is publishing to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award.  All of the recipes use items that one could get at a local food pantry.

Barrett will be there to help the children make masks for Halloween.  Barrett is working with WCK to provide activities for the children who come to the dinners to earn her Girl Scout Bronze Award.
