Make a meal for HQ!

Warm, hot meals are the cornerstone to belonging, and we believe that access to nutritious, delicious food is a human right. By bringing us a meal, you can make that happen at HQ.

How it works: 

Choose a meal from the calendar above: There are two options for you to choose from, meals that we serve during drop-in, and meals that we make for youth to take with them “to go.” Click “sign up” to send us an email to let us know what you’re making, and “get the recipe” to view and download HQ’s recipe for either the to-go or in drop-in meal. If you’re making a meal for drop-in, feel free to use your own recipe as well, if you’ve got a favorite! Drop-in meals should feed approximately 30 people; 10 to-go meals should be prepared. (If you feel like preparing more than the suggested serving size, we guarantee it’ll all get eaten!)

Dropping off the meal

Meal drop-offs are Monday-Wednesday-Friday from noon-2p at HQ, 320 State St. SE, Grand Rapids only. If you choose a Tuesday/Thursday meal, please bring it on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. Please park in the loading zone next to HQ while delivering your items, and avoid using the neighbor’s driveway while unloading your items. Thank you! The fine print To sign up, click “Sign up” beneath the recipe/day of your choice. This will prompt you to email Luke—please let him know the meal you’re making and on which day. For drop-in meals: Please deliver meals in covered 9″x13″ aluminum baking pans or freezer Ziploc bags so we can efficiently store and prepare the meal you’ve made. All meals must be labelled with the date of preparation and the name of the meal. If your meal includes fresh ingredients or ingredients that HQ will prepare (e.g.: sour cream or biscuits), please bring them in an additional container/bag, also labelled with the meal name to which they belong. To-go meals: Please wrap sandwiches in tinfoil or in a sandwich bag and place each sandwich in its own paper lunch bag and label with the type of sandwich. [For complete and detailed instructions regarding to-go meal preparation, please click “get the recipe” from a to-go meal day from the meal calendar below.] Alternatively, you may deliver the to-go meal ingredients and we’ll assemble them ourselves at HQ. Any questions? Send Luke an email!
