Easy Entertaining’s Give a Meal Program in partnership with Amos House

For most of us, the holidays are all about being with friends and family over a warm meal. The sad reality is that not every Rhode Islander is afforded these basic needs. Your support can help us make the holidays a little better for someone who needs it most.

Last year we partnered with Providence’s Amos House to help supply holiday meals to our city’s in-need community. We asked y’all to purchase single plates (or a bundle of plates) that our team would prepare, package and deliver to Amos House so they could provide a Thanksgiving meal to their guests. Your support B L E W us away, helping us provide 700+ meals.

Based on last year’s success it was an easy decision to continue with this partnership this year. Amos House has asked for our help in providing 400 meals and we’re confident, with your help, we can make that happen. If you’re ordering Thanksgiving from us, we hope you’ll consider adding a plate or a bundle to your order. If you’re not ordering from us, but would still like to take part in the program, you can order a plate or bundle independently via the same online store!

We are accepting orders through 12:00 noon on Thursday November 18th and we truly appreciate your consideration and support in this fundraiser that’s become so important to us.
