If you love messing around in the kitchen and want to help your neighbors, this is for you. Lasagna Love is a grassroots organization that finds people who would love to cook a meal for someone in need. You sign up and once you get a match, you deliver it within your own community.
Lasagna Love recently surpassed its 100,000 lasagna delivery mark. Lasagna Love has been sharing the meals with Americans struggling with financial and other challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the past year, the nonprofit has amassed 33,000 volunteers across every state in the country. Although more Americans are getting vaccinated and heading back to work, the group’s leaders say they’re not letting up on their mission of offering a comforting plate of food to families. They’re aiming to get additional volunteers so more people can get home-cooked meals.
KXL’s Veronica Carter has already delivered one lasagna to a woman who just had surgery on her arm, and got another request from another family with a mom recovering from a medical procedure. She found out it’s pretty easy. You decide how often you want to help out and how far you want to drive to deliver it. You can also specify if you are willing to cook gluten free or vegetarian meals.
