Summer 2022

Summer 2022

Dear Friends, Family and Cooking for the Crowd Supporters,


2020 was a tough year to start a charity non-profit that serves food to groups!  We did it anyway, and cooked and served 3,000 homemade meals to deserving groups all over Dallas.  Cooking for the Crowd saved the nonprofits that we serve 70% on their meal budgets that can now go towards their primary mission. In 2021 we provided 4,000 meals, and we have given high schoolers nearly 700 service hours. Groups we serve include St. Patrick’s Refugee Outreach Program, DISD Teen Pregnancy & Parenting Program, Life Pack (serves homeless around DFW) and teen faith groups.


$20,000 grant from the Harold Simmons Foundation


Our BIG NEWS for 2021 is that we received our first grant!!!  The Harold Simmons Foundation has generously awarded us a $20,000.00 grant. Cooking for the Crowd is honored to carry out the Foundation’s goal of improving lives and enriching the community through this grant.  We could not be more grateful for their support. 


Looking to the future


Our goal in 2022 is to double the groups we serve and provide 6,000 meals.  We will be updating our website to have an easy way to order casseroles for individuals and groups.  


How YOU can help


Donate:  Monetary donations are greatly appreciated and go directly towards food costs. $100 buys meals for 50 people. We can really stretch a buck! Donate easily by visiting our Donation Page. You can even set up your donation as a monthly gift.

Spread The Word:  If you know of small non-profit groups in the DFW that would benefit from our service, please share our information with them or contact us.


Thank you for your consideration and generosity!
