RRCH Freezer Meal Exchanges

How it works
Each member brings enough main entrees for each of the other people in the group (between 4-6).
-You pick a freezer recipe you like or that sounds good and multiply it to make however many are needed. Then we get together and swap. For example: if there are five people in the exchange group, each would bring four freezable meals to give to each member. Each member will have five freezer meals (including their own).

The deadline to sign up for each swap is (loosely) the 1st of each month.  To sign up e-mail Tiffany Scott @ rockinc@ntin.net & provide the following information:

  1. What you would like to make
  2. The size of your family *by portion size) (ex. 3 adults, 3 kids)
  3. If you would like to be included in more than one group (we do groups of 4-6, so if you would like potentially 10 meals, then you would be included in 2 groups)

We meet (typically) meet @ 7:00pm on the last Monday of each month to exchange meals.  Location for the swap varies.  

~Stick mostly to main dishes.
~Make enough to serve at least 2 adults and 4 kids. *If you family is bigger no problem just let the host know when you RSVP so they can accommodate in the count.
~Bring food in disposable tin with saran wrap over the top or use a freezer bag (may want to double bag soups).  *Dollar store is great place to get these.
~Label & date your meal
~Freeze the meals prior to exchange (that way nothing is left to sit at room temp for any amount of time & they stack better)
~Include a recipe card
~Budget is usually between $6-8/meal.
