Ree Drummond has New Shows

She’s taping in her kitchen with her children as crew.  And she’s featuring recipes that you can cook with food on hand.  I especially like her doctored canned tomato soup.  Here is the link to the recipe: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/tomato-soup-20-1-8628982.

You can also watch her shows online, but they require you to subscribe to a cable service which includes a subscription to the Food Network.

NEW! Walnut Creek Neighbor Express

NEW! Walnut Creek Neighbor Express matches volunteers with those in need of grocery delivery  The City of Walnut Creek has partnered with U.S. Digital Response (USDR), a volunteer-run, non-partisan effort to help connect one neighbor to another to deliver groceries and provide a helping hand to the vulnerable community members during COVID-19.

Through the new Walnut Creek Neighbor Express website, vulnerable community members can request frozen meals, order your usual groceries, or ask for other help you may need. A volunteer will bring your delivery right to your door!

How does it work?

Seniors can visit this site to request a grocery/meal drop off or helping hand.  Please note, it can take up to a couple of days to get paired with a volunteer and schedule a delivery. However, the phone lines are staffed 7 days a week 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and you will be connected with a real live person who can help you get started or answer questions.
If you don’t have access to internet, call 925-322-0264 and a City of Walnut Creek staff member can fill out the form for you.

Questions? Email volunteer@walnut-creek.org

Are you healthy and want to volunteer?

Please visit here and sign up to volunteer.

  • Once your form is submitted, a City of Walnut Creek staff member will call you to get some additional information, answer your questions, and get you set up to match with a community member who needs a delivery.
  • Volunteer shifts can be a one-time drop off or more ongoing support with regular deliveries.
  • Questions? Email volunteer@walnut-creek.org

Spread the word! Share the website, walnutcreek.neighborexpress.org, with friends and family in Walnut Creek.

Looking for Neighbor Express in other communities? Visit neighborexpress.org for the latest info. City of Concord is currently accepting requests and volunteers, and more communities nationwide are expected to join soon.
