Donate Meals

Do you enjoy cooking?

Do you have a delicious recipe that you would like to share with others?

Please consider making a homemade meal for youth at Home Base YK!

(or, purchase a store-bought meal or restaurant meal and donate it to Home Base YK)

Basic Role Expectations

What can you donate?

  • Many youth that access Home Base YK love traditional comfort foods such as:

    • Chicken with rice and vegetables

    • Macaroni and cheese

    • Spaghetti and meatballs

    • Beef or chicken tacos

    • Hamburgers, hotdogs, and sausages

    • Lasagna

    • Casseroles

    • Soup

    • Stir fry

    • Homemade bread or buns

    • Other baked goods

  • Many youth that access Home Base YK like to try new foods from different cultures. If you make a traditional dish from your culture, it will likely be a hit with the youth!

  • Many youth like traditional Northern food such as moose, caribou, arctic char, and seal.

  • Avoid making spicy meals – this is something that the youth typically do not like.

  • Avoid seafood dishes - many youth typically do not like this.
