  • Fresh fruits, veggies and dips ( Ranch, etc. )
  • Nuts, granola, yogurt
  • Prepared meal for 20 people (think sloppy joes, mac & cheese)
  • Cheese, microwaveable soups, mac and cheese / noodles in a cup

Challenge Yourself

Challenge yourself. Challenge stereotypes. Challenge what you think you know. Our number one wish is for community members to come in to TheShop and interact with youth. Play a game of foosball. Teach us a how to build something. Be a role model. Share with us your skills, passions or hobbies.
