Hi Michel,

I’m available to deliver on 12/23 - we have a dinner that night at our home, so I would appreciate having an early time and ideally the same route that I had for Thanksgiving.

A post was merged into an existing topic: Holiday meals: please book now!

I would like to volunteer but because I live with a very immunocompromised person, I am wondering about the COVID health precautions for volunteers.
Are all volunteers required to show proof of full vaccination? And what is the physical building situation and spacing situation for volunteers?

Probably others are wondering the same thing so you might want to send out another email (with a slightly different healing so people don’t assume it is a repeat) with this kind of information.

Hi Michel,

You can put me down to deliver on the 23rd. Do I need to provide info on my license or insurance or anything since this will be my 1st time driving for you?

I’ll try to make Sundays for packing but can’t commit to Sundays yet.

also on Thursday 12/23 for the delivery

Dear Michael, I’m available to help on 12/12 and12/19. I have some mobility issues so I can’t do a lot, I guess packing would be about my speed. Louise Kaufman

Michel,
Is the kitchen wheelchair accessible? I am an experienced cook with great knife/food processing skills, but I now use a power wheelchair. (I have restaurant experience from years ago.) If I can get into the kitchen you can set me up in one spot and have folks bring me the raw material.
If this is possible, I’m happy to help with food prep on multiple days, including tomorrow.
Just let me know.
Thanks for putting together this great project.

I can do deliveries on 12/23! (Sorry I can’t help cook/pack – I’m slammed with work things that need to get finished before the holidays.)

I can volunteer to prep, bake, etc. on Sunday 12/12
