Cooked 2 Serve

Providing nutrient dense, easy-to-reheat food for Families In Need 

This program of the Northwest Alliance Community Foundation provides frozen, ready-to-heat meals to families in Polk County. The objective of Cooked2Serve is to provide nutrient dense meals to families AND support local restaurants and farmers. Food items, soups, and pan dinners are purchased from local restaurants precooked, frozen, and ready-to-heat at home.

Cooked2Serve began during the pandemic (2020) to obtain supplemental meals for families AND  support owners and staff of restaurants affected by the economic downturn. Meals were delivered to Frederic Schools to augment aid to families. The Frederic School kitchen staff divide up the meals to go home with designated families for the weekend. Meals come in on Thursdays and meals go out on Fridays. Meals continue to be delivered every other week to the Frederic Schools.       

And Cooked2Serve is growing -- meals are now also delivered to Luck Schools and to Community Referral Agency, a domestic abuse shelter in Milltown. Partnering continues with Farm Table Foundation in Amery, Natural Alternative Food Co-op in Luck,  and Cafe Wren in Luck. These suppliers source ingredients for Cooked2Serve meals from local farmers and growers. 

Our farmers include Farm Table Foundation Farmer members and Johnson Family Farms in Frederic.

Cooked2Serve is a component program at Northwest Alliance Community Foundation (NACF) an affiliate of the St Croix Valley Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization accredited by the Community Foundations National Standards Board and the Charities Review Council. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. NACF serves communities throughout Northern Polk and Burnett Counties.
