Weekend Meals to Go Bagged Meals
The Women's Center provides bagged meals on Saturdays and Sundays to guests who have stayed with us during the day as they travel to their overnight destination. Help us provide a healthy meal for our guests to take with them for their evening meal. We need 30-35 bagged meals each Saturday and Sunday. Groups that sign up to provide Weekend Meals To Go will pack bags at their own location and deliver these bags to The Women's Center, 112 Cox Ave., Raleigh, by 3pm on the day they are to be distributed.

Each bag should include

-One Sandwich--please make a variety, such as ham, turkey, tuna salad, egg salad, peanut butter and jelly. Please mark the sandwich type on the outside of each bag. Please pack condiments separately.)
-Individually packaged, snack-sized packs of foods such as raisins, dried fruit, crackers, cheese and cracker packs, granola bar.
-Small bag of chips or pretzels
-Fruit (apple sauce, orange/fruit cup)
-1 or 2 cookies, brownies or dessert
-1 small bottled water or juice box (please place bottle in a ziplock bag to reduce moisture from condensation in the lunch bag
-Optional: send a note of encouragement

Please note: Please make 5 of these meals in accordance with a diabetic/low glycemic diet (whole grains, whole fruit, tuna or chicken, cheese, nuts, celery, carrots) as some of our clients are diabetic. You may choose to pack all meals this way. Or, please mark these 5 bags with a "D."
