Our thanks to Maria for sharing her recipes from Guatemala with us for Thrive’s upcoming takeout meal on Wednesday, Dec. 15th with pick up from 5-6pm at City Alliance Church (420 Elmira Street in Williamsport).  We hope you enjoy!

Our meal this month is gluten free and features the following:

2 empanadas–These are made from homemade tortillas made from corn maseca stuffed with chicken, carrots, onion, and cheese.

Salad–This is shredded lettuce that is a great accompaniment for a bite of empanada

Condiments–This includes sour cream and salsa to eat with the empanadas.

There will be a vegetarian option with a filing mix of cabbage, onion, and cheese.

Agua de Jimica (hibiscus tea) will be available as a drink this month.

Ordering–Use the online PayPal option on this page to order (no PayPal account needed).  To order multiple items, look for the blue “Continue Shopping” link on at the top right corner of the order page.  This will allow you to add additional items to your cart before paying.

*Our customers occasionally have trouble placing orders through PayPal on iPhones.  Ordering from a computer can help.  You are also welcome to call us at 570-337-2898 if you have trouble ordering.*

Time–Pick up is from 5pm-6pm on the day of the event.

Location–Pick up is at City Alliance Church (420 Elmira Street in Williamsport, PA 17701). Look for us outside on the Elmira Street side of the building.  If it rains, we will be just inside the double doors on that same side of the building.

Weather–If inclement weather occurs causing dangerous driving conditions on a takeout meal day, the takeout will be rescheduled for the next day.  Notification will be provided via email, Facebook, and this webpage.
