Friendship Trays, a volunteer-based food organization, gathers, prepares, and delivers nutritious meals to homebound individuals who are unable to obtain or prepare their own food due to age, illness, or injury.
Each weekday, 100 Friendship Trays volunteers prepare more than 500 meals to be delivered to homebound recipients, sometimes preparing as many as 725 for one day's delivery. The volunteers deliver meals around lunch time, and each balanced meal comprises two separate containers of food—one with meat or fish and an accompanying vegetable, and one with a carbohydrate, fruit or salad, and dessert—along with a container of milk or juice. Friendship Trays drivers hand-deliver each meal to its recipient with a friendly, face-to-face greeting. Since each meal costs the organization $4.50 to prepare, it costs a total of $1,170 to provide one individual with a meal each weekday for one year, and the organization relies on outside donations to continue to provide this service.
Join G-Team and donate $9 to help Friendship Trays provide nutritious, balanced meals to homebound individuals. If G-Team members raise $270, then Friendship Trays can provide one meal each to 60 individuals who are unable to obtain or prepare meals. Each additional $9 will provide meals to two more homebound individuals.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
