ASSEMBLING PLASTIC WARE EATING UTENSIL KITS

A great way for younger children to get involved with helping feed the needy among us.

PLACE ONE HEAVY DUTY KNIFE, FORK, SPOON AND A NAPKIN IN A ZIP LOCK BAG. 

We are always in need of these packages.  You can make as many as you please. These packs are given to those receiving meals at Ship's Galley (a soup kitchen), SHIP's Mobile Soup Kitchen and SHIP's Holiday Meals programs.

ZITI FOR THE NEEDY

FAST & EASY

These are easy to make frozen casseroles and go over well with SHIP’s clientele.  Most faith communities purchase aluminum foil pans with covers and work together to prepare the Ziti after each service on a particular day.  The Ziti is cooked, frozen and brought to the service two weeks later.  Everything is then delivered to SHIP after the last service of the day as most faith communities lack refrigerated storage space.

ZITI WITH TOMATO SAUCE

INGREDIENTS; 1 lb. any brand ziti

Cook ziti according to directions on package.  Brown chopped meat (fine) and add to sauce. Pour sauce over cooked ziti.

Please place your cooked Ziti in the aluminum pans provided.  Spray top cover with Pam (or similar product) so food does not stick to the lid.  Cover tightly and freeze.  Unfrozen food cannot be accepted without prior notice of delivery to SHIP according to schedule. 

Kindly label all trays – with date and label with or without meat.
