Pay It Forward

A partnership with Ladders Thrift Store

“The table is a meeting place, a gathering ground, the source of sustenance and nourishment, festivity, safety, and satisfaction. A person cooking is a person giving: Even the simplest food is a gift.” – Laurie Colwin


During the winter season we will be offering a Pay It Forward meal on our Online Menu, click here, and look for “Pay it Forward meal”. Select the Pick Up option(no delivery charge), and we will make the prepared meal and deliver it to Ladders, where they will keep frozen and distribute it to those in need. Meals will be one of the following: Veggie Lasagna, Sausage Lasagna, Beef Paprikash, Pulled Pork Enchiladas, or can change as our menu changes. The Pay It Forward Meals will be discounted in comparison to the regular meals as our contribution. Thanks for helping out our community!


During the summer season we will have a Pay It Forward board. Allowing customers to purchase a meal and post the ticket it on the Pay It Forward board for a community member in need to use it for a meal, no questions asked. What about unused meals? We are partnering with Ladder’s Thrift Store to bring the unused meals to a board at their location where their customers can take advantage of the program and take a ticket to bring back to the Dandelion Eatery at their convenience.

Local delicious food for all.
