Mimi’s Cafe Dine in Deal

Orange County Rescue Mission 

Last, but not least, I want to mention a donation opportunity to help the Orange County Rescue Mission to donate meals to the needy.  Here are the details below obtained by the Orange County Rescue Mission:

“By donating $35 you can provide 24 meals to those in need, feeding a single person three meals a day for more than a week,” explained Palmer. “In fact, a donation of $35 breaks down to a cost of only $1.48 for an entire meal, which is less than the cost of a morning cup of coffee.”

Donating to the Orange County Rescue Mission is simple and can be completed through the organization’s online donation center at www.RescueMission.org.  Donors can input their desired donation amount, or choose from the following meal donation options:

·$35 to provide 24 meals, which feeds one person for 8 days

·$71 to provide 48 meals, which feeds one person for 16 days

·$142 to provide 96 meals, which feeds one person for 32 days

·$250 to provide 169 meals, which feeds one person for 56 days

·$500 to provide 338 meals, which feeds one person for 112 days

Meals are provided to those in need in a number of ways.  Residents of the Orange County Rescue Mission’s transitional living facilities are fed each day, and the organization’s chili van outreach provides meals to the homeless throughout the county each week.  In addition, meals are given to those in need through partnerships with local food banks.”

    In this year’s Thanksgiving, may you find in your heart to remember those who have suffered the anger of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Be grateful for where you are and for another chance to experience life. Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. Rachel says:

    Thank you for the options for ordering Thanksgiving dinner and not having to make it. I liked that you included some of the prices too. It’s beneficial info when planning a menu and a budget.

  6. Romina says:

    We purchased a complete Thanksgiving meal from Knott’s last year and it was worth the price. I’m all about eating good food, especially if someone else is making it. May check out Mimi’s this year.

    • Very awesome Romina! Thanksgiving from Knott’s sounds amazing!! I LOVE their food!! Mimi’s has a great meal. I did it one year with my family and we were happy.:) We did the dining in option. I prefer to take everything home though at least on Turkey day:) Have a great Thanksgiving!!

  7. No more turkey for me. But i do like the idea of someone else cooking. Lol

    Miss Thanksgiving in the USA, it’s my favorite holiday! Up here in Canada our Thanksgiving was in October. Shared!

    We enjoy cooking and getting the family all to pitch in. Thank you for sharing this though.

  11. I’ve been thinking about this. Thank you for sharing where I can go!

  12. Thank you for sharing, but my kids won’t let me get away without cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

  13. Irene says:

    Wow never even thought about not cooking on Thanksgiving. I think I would miss the bonding with my family, however, there is definitely something to be said for not having to clean up all those dirty dishes!!

  14. Dov Shapira says:

    Wow, really cool option there.
    I think I will cook again this year and I love it 🙂

  15. although these are really good prepackaged restaurant deals, I still like cooking a meal with my own hands

  16. For some this would be a really good option. But I love to do the cooking and on Thanksgiving it just seems to taste a little better. I do have to say that the stuff you posted really looks good though.

  17. Love this list Dani! Sharing on my facebook page. This is great for when I take a meal to my momma!
