Congratulations to Michelle Brown, our volunteers of the month for June 2019! Michelle, an office volunteer since 2016, was nominated by Kyle Copp, operations and sustainability manager.
We give our mac ‘n cheese a nutrition boost by adding pumpkin (for additional fiber and micronutrients) and using Neufchatel cheese and sour cream to reduce the percentage of calories from fat. The result? This recipe is a client favorite and is requested frequently! I hope you enjoy it as much as our clients do.
Note: Neufchatel cheese is a low-fat substitute for cream cheese, which is why we use it. Because of its lower fat content, it does not melt as easily, so blending it solves that and helps make a creamy cheese sauce!

We celebrated a big milestone at the end of May–the one-year anniversary of Project Angel Heart’s meal shipment program! Though our Meals for Care Transitions program, we contract with a wide range of health care organizations across the state in an effort to provide medically tailored meals to a greater number of Coloradans who need them. Shipping meals is how we’re able to serve people living in rural areas whose meals are provided through one of our contracts.
In the first year of shipping meals, we delivered more than 5,000 meals to 146 clients outside of our normal delivery boundaries. We packed all of those meals in our kitchen, and then FedEx delivered them right to the recipients’ doors in communities where medically tailored meals might otherwise be hard to come by.
In year one, we sent 599 packages as far as 290 miles from our Denver kitchen. The meals were delivered to 34 different towns in 18 counties –that’s 28 percent of the counties in Colorado!
Congratulations to these volunteers, who are celebrating their Project Angel Heart anniversary this month! We are grateful for your ongoing service.
