The Singletons Kitchen is one of the core pillars of The Singletons program. Its purpose is to provide delicious family-style meals, made with fresh ingredients and offer a simple answer to the ever-present question, “What’s for dinner? And portions are generous enough to leave a few leftovers, too!
Singleton parents wishing to receive meals simply sign up each month on our parent portal and select which type of protein they prefer ~ chicken, beef, pork, or seafood. A variety of meals are ordered by The Singletons at Dream Dinners, and assembled once a month by wonderful volunteer groups (who register to participate by contacting The Singletons office). When meal-prep is finished, we freeze the meals until the third Saturday of each month. Families receive their entrees, some sides and /or breakfast pockets at the same time they receive their Bare Necessities bundles.
What happens when a group arrives at Dream Dinners? Our Singletons Kitchen Hostess(es) along with Dream Dinners staff will be there to greet them. They’ll hear The Singletons story and then get quick instructions about how to put the meals together. Volunteers split up around the room, 2-3 at each station. They each follow well marked recipes, and create delicious meals with provided utensils, kitchen tools and packaging. They measure the already chopped, sliced and grated ingredients – the same foods you’d have in your own kitchen. Every meal includes easy-to-cook instructions and is stored in the refrigerator until they are taken to The Singletons freezers.
We like to say that these are kid-friendly meals, not only for the taste, but also because even a child as young as 11 or so can put dinner together, with just a little supervision from Mom or Dad.
