READY TO SERVE MEALS

Would you consider preparing meals which would reheat well in an oven? These dishes are frozen and used as needed.

Each Tuesday Breakthrough provides  meals to the homeless and those in need.  It is very helpful for us to have individual containers or frozen, home-cooked meals where we can reheat in our ovens on such occasions.

You can contact Jim Rottinger at 952-412-3594 with questions or to arrange a drop off.
