PoMA: Meal for Tent City #5

Our Nalandabodhi sangha has been given an opportunity to prepare and serve an evening meal to the residents of Tent City #5 (Interbay) on Sunday, February 12. We are pleased to present this opportunity for sangha members to extend their practice “off the cushion” and have arranged a couple different ways for you to contribute.

Preparing and Serving the Meal for Tent City #5

We are looking for volunteers to help in four different activities. If you are interested and available, please sign-up for a shift on the sign-up sheet at Nalanda West or online.

  • Shopping: We need 2 volunteers with cars to go to CostCo with Dianne Eberlein on February 10 to pick-up the food and deliver it to Nalanda West. Dianne will have completed the menu plan and have a shopping list ready. Time: 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
  • Food Prep #1: We need 6-8 people to prepare and wrap sandwiches (with sliced meat) on February 12. Time: 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
  • Food Prep #2: We need 6-8 people to chop and steam vegetables for a salad and prepare a hot pasta casserole (both vegetarian). Time: 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
  • Delivery & Serving: We need 3 people with cars to deliver the meal to the camp and help set-up and 3 people to serve the meal and clean-up. Time: 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
