Starting in August we need host sites for the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. Being a host site does not mean you also have to be the meal provider. We can partner you with other communities that can provide the meals.

If you are thinking about becoming a regular host site, consider doing a trial host on one of the following dates.
August 26; September 9, 23 or 30.
