Cooked 2 Serve

Community donations buy food for distribution to local families in need: Cooked 2 Serve is the link.

We provide frozen, ready-to-heat meals to families in Polk County. The objectives of C2S are to provide nutrient dense meals to families AND support local restaurants and farmers. Food items, soups and pan dinners, purchased from local restaurant sources are precooked, frozen, and ready to heat up at home.

C2S began in 2020 during the pandemic to obtain supplemental meals AND to support the owners and staff of restaurants in the downturn caused by pandemic restrictions. These meals were delivered to the Frederic School to augment their aid to families within the district. These meals continue to be delivered every other week to local schools for distribution. As Cooked2Serve grows, meals are also now delivered to Community Referral Agency, a domestic abuse shelter based in Milltown.

Partnering continues with the Farm Table Foundation in Amery, Natural Alternative Food Coop and Cafe Wren in Luck.  These suppliers source many of the ingredients for C2S meals from local farmers and growers. The Farm Table, our primary supplier’s mission is to grow local food culture through education, research, and training.

Cooked2Serve is a component program at Northwest Alliance Community Foundation which, in turn, is an affiliate of St Croix Valley Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
