Full Circle Meals
Full Circle Meals, a program of The Arc, provides meals to the underserved and those on the “front lines” during this COVID crisis, while supporting the Kitsap restaurant community and helping to restore our local economy.
Since April, we will have prepared and delivered more than 10,000 meals, and our daily count is now averaging more than 200. These meals are prepared and packaged by local Kitsap restaurants, small businesses working to retain and rehire their employees and emerge to keep their restaurants open.
Our objective on the community side is to identify and support those not readily apparent as in need but who may be underserved due to the COVID protocols, or those who are in difficult workplace environments who would benefit from these meals - and the morale boost.
Our objective on the restaurant side is to aid and assist those local restaurants who took the risk to stay open despite low revenue and all the risks inherent in staying open to try their best to serve the community and continue to employ staff. Many of these restaurants have barely managed to continue and they are happy to prepare these take out meals at a fair cost covered by donations.
