Tim Schmitt, a May 2015 Daily Herald Cook of the Week, has once again volunteered to create a new and delicious menu for the Community Meal scheduled from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on November 2 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Palatine. Tim enjoys feeding large crowds with delicious recipes. This November he intends to serve a scrumptious chicken with rice dish which will be accompanied by rolls, mixed greens with choice of dressings, and a frozen dessert. Those preferring a vegetarian meal will be offered a broccoli and rice dish option.

The entire community is invited to this no-cost Community Meal made possible by the generous monetary donation of Thrivent Financial. Dr. Zachary Linggle from Evolve Chiropractic will be the meal’s guest presenter on the topic of wellness that evening. We will also share information about the Operation Christmas Child Packing event taking place on November 6 at Immanuel.

If you would like to assist in serving the community for the November 2nd meal please link to the Community Meal Sign Up Form.
