by the Coronavirus crisis
   
Advisors/Supporters/Donors
We have an outpouring of support & advice from
so many. Thanks. I've tried to list a few:
- Ken Spence - Our 1st donor & father of the idea!
- Cary Conroy - Donor, customer & cheerleader
- Amy & Tony Downer - Donors

Partners
We are partnering with Wooster Hollow Cafe who is providing the meals at cost. We have partnered with other organizations to distribute meals to those in need:
- Alfa Y Omega Church - Danbury 
- Pivot Ministries - Bridgeport
- Meals on Wheels - Ridgefield
- Feed our Heros - Ridgefield
- Ability Beyond - Bethel
- Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen - Danbury
- First Congregational Church of Ridgefield
   

How are we doing?

As of October 30 we have or will have provided 4,520 meals to those in need.  As people have mostly gone back to work, the need has reduced well below the peak 400-500 meals per week that we were providing at the beginning of the pandemic. That said, we intend to continue to be there for anyone who needs our help. We are focusing our efforts now on the Danbury Soup Kitchens.
     
How can you Help?
We welcome donations and will shortly set up the ability to donate on-line.  Until then you can send a tax deductible donation to Sunrise Meals: 
   
Sunrise Meals
C/O Wooster Hollow Cafe
659 Danbury Road
Ridgefiel, CT 06877
    
We also would like to include desserts in our meals. We welcome donations in kind. We ask that each serving be wrapped in plastic for obvious reasons and be prepared only by those who are well. Cookies and brownies are ideal . 
   
Administration
100% of funds donated will go towards providing meals for those in need. All administrative tasks will be paid for or provided by Ron Herman and other volunteers.  Wooster Hollow Cafe will be reimbursed for their direct food and labor costs. This will help them give employment to their staff but they will in no way profit from your donations
