Change the world one lasagna at a time

 

I want to first off compliment your amazing cooking. This is absolutely scrumptous! Next, I want to tell you thank you for your hard earned money put into the ingredients, time, and the gas to bring it to us! AND in the rain! I’ve never had dinner delivered like this so I am just thankful for it! 

Lasagna Recipient

I thank whatever happenstance that brought you to this charitable organization, and hope that this message confirms the fact that you and the others that have undertaken this mission, are doing a worthy and needed task. Age and mileage, dictate that neither myself or my wife have any time to cook as we used to, and thereby the kindness of others providing us with home cooked meal is a simple joy, that Common thanks seem an underpayment for, but I have little else to offer in recompense. A blessing on you and yours Dear Lady.

Since joining (and receiving) Lasagna Love saved my marriage. My husband and I have gotten closer. We found out that we love to cook together, and haven’t been able to bond for so long because of our different personalities and my disability. But, making lasagnas makes us so happy! We love researching recipies together, making shopping lists, creating prep videos, and listening to tavern music together. Thank you to this wonderful organization, and for my step mother for introducing me to Lasagna Love. Our relationship has spark again!

Thank you again. The lasagna was a BIG hit with the family. The aroma filled the air as it cooked and brought us all together. This was the first time since the holidays that we’ve actually sat as a family and enjoyed just hanging out and enjoying dinner together. It was truly a blessing and I am so grateful. Thank you so much ❤️

I wanted to Thank You Very Much again. The lasagnas were excellent. Your organization is a God send. I am sorry that I didn’t get outside in time to see you this trip. But I want to bestow upon You an honor that I have only told a few people. I firmly believe that there are angels among us on this earth. I believe that You are one of them. You give of yourself and it comes out through everything that You do and the lives that You touch. Just the short time that you spend with people is infectious and helps others. God Bless You. Stay Safe and Keep Healthy. Safe travels.

My wife and I have been delivering 2 lasagna’s in the Jacksonville area every other week for a little over 2 years and have almost reached 100. Despite that when we came back from a 3 month pause for medical reasons we found that there was a long wait time for our matches. Wanting to help but limited to what we were currently doing was frustrating. Enter my regional leader; she organized a relay so that additional Lasagna Love chefs would deliver lasagna’s to us and we would relay them to families. We were able to add three more families to our delivery route!
