Serve Lunch at NorthCare Hospice in the Northland!

NorthCare Hospice & Palliative Care provides compassionate, state-of-the-art hospice care for people facing a wide range of end-stage illnesses. Their patients are eligible for hospice services when their goal is comfort care rather than curative care. NorthCare serves all or part of the following counties in Missouri: Cass, Clay, Clinton, Jackson, Platte and Ray.

Serve KC volunteers provide lunch for the patients' families to allow them to spend as much time as possible with their loved ones who are nearing the end of their lives.
This month we are serving a week earlier due to the Easter weekend.  I wasn't sure if there would be enough people available for Easter weekend.  Our meal theme is soup! NorthCare Hospice doesn't have a stove; they have a microwave only.

NorthCare has 16 patient rooms but it is difficult to get an accurate count until closer to that time. For now, we will plan on needing the following:

#1. Croissant rolls and/or other bread for sandwiches - Kathy
#2. Tuna salad - Jen

#3. Chicken Salad - Leacy
#4. Egg Salad - Gina
#5. Salad with dressing - Cindy
#6.  Fresh fruit - Jay
#7. 1 cake or 2 dozen cookies - Natasha
When you sign up, please indicate which food item(s) above you will bring.
Please be firm in your participation commitment.
If you have menu suggestions for future lunches, please share them. We are currently serving once a month.

    This was a really nice event. A great group of volunteers as usual, always so wonderful to meet new faces. The families were so appreciative and thankful.

    It looks like census is around 11 patients as of yesterday. This might help in planning quantity!

      Thank you Jay, either a fruit salad or some cut up fruit like pineapple, melon, and/or grapes, and strawberries would be great. As to quantity, maybe 2 quarts worth? It's really up to you. :-)
