PARSIPPANY — Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany once again cooked at Homeless Solutions. Every month members of the Kiwanis volunteer to prepare a delicious fresh cooked meal.

This month, Frank Cahill, Nicolas Limanov and Dr. Patrick Selimo prepared dinner. President-elect Frank Cahill started his Saturday morning by shopping for food, which is paid for by Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany.

The group of volunteers meet at Homeless Solutions to start preparing dinner for the guests in the transitional housing program.  The group prepared a fresh fruit salad, tossed salad with numerous dressings, baked ziti with meatballs and rolls and served vanilla cheesecake for dessert. They also served iced tea and coffee. Other volunteer groups such as St. Ann’s Church prepares dinner for the shelter on other days of the month. Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany has been providing meals to Homeless Solutions for the past eleven years.
