A request from the Richmond Obama office

The Richmond Obama office is urgently requesting help feeding campaign workers and volunteers.

Providing food service to a campaign is a great way to volunteer for a campaign for people who can't spare a block of hours to volunteer in person. Stay-at-home parents can cook a big batch of something and drop it off at Obama headquarters.

Some inexpensive ideas:
  • Baked pasta dishes like spaghetti or lasagna
  • Baked chicken
  • A pan of hot dogs with rolls and fixings
  • A pan of home made barbecue with rolls
  • A big chef salad
  • Breakfast casserole
  • A big tray of Virginia ham biscuits
  • Quiche
  • Red beans and rice with sausage link
  • Vegetarian red beans and rice
  • Casseroles

It's a good idea to use recyclable disposable aluminum pans so you can just drop your food donation off without worrying about having to go back and get your dishes. Let's show the Obama campaign some Richmond hospitality!
