378/24/2019For the summer hot dog lunch. Why not have a caterd meal (maybe Cooper's Bar-B-Q). Cooper's does a very nice catered Bar-B-Q. Some seniors don't cook anymore. Of course we would pay for a catered meal. It would be worth it.Because some people don't bring a dish and the food gives out.Thanks for the opportunity to suggest.This has been forwarded to the Program Specialist for her review
