Sunday Suppers, a Co-op sponsored outreach initiative, benefits low-income households and homebound seniors in the Swarthmore and surrounding communities. On Sunday nights, after the Co-op closes its doors to shoppers, volunteers from the community cook healthy, nutritious meals in the Co-op kitchen. The meals are delivered on Monday mornings.
Recipients receive delicious, nutrient-rich, homemade meals that supported health, and volunteers cultivate a sense of service through cooking together for others in need.
If you would like to take part in Sunday Suppers, please contact email@example.com
