Summer Family Dinners Project

Help Feed Your Neighbors

The Coronavirus outbreak continues to pose an unprecedented threat to our already at-risk community here in Marin County. This includes our neighbors in the Canal district and many other neighborhood families. Many of these multi-generational families, with limited or no access to government sponsored relief programs, are disproportionately impacted by economic and health issues, including food insecurity. For these reasons, Whistlestop is proud to support a program to help feed our neighbors, friends, and families throughout the summer.

“Summer Family Dinners” will provide a healthy and delicious pre-cooked dinner for a family of four from June through August. Stacy Scott Catering, a well-respected caterer in Marin will prepare and package the family meals. Families will just need to re-heat them and they are ready to enjoy.

These dinners will be distributed weekly at the Canal Alliance Food Pantry and at other food distribution centers in the San Rafael area. With the support of generous people in our community we will be able to supply family dinners for the next two months. By the end of summer, we hope to raise $10,000 which will provide a dinner meal for 2000 people.
