Kitchen, Pantry, and Meals (Family Rule book part 7)

A messy kitchen can ruin a good mood in a moment.  In a big family the kitchen can get messy very quickly.  Another problem in a big family is making sure that there is enough food for everyone.  The next page in our rule book helps with the kitchen and food issues that all families have, but especially those families that have members who have suffered from times of not having enough food to eat.

For people who have known what it is like to not have enough food, it is very important to make sure they know where the food is and when they can eat it.

So here is our Kitchen, Pantry, and Meals page.

Kitchen, Pantry, and Meals

For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is
not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
2 Thessalonians 3:10

If you eat here, you clean here!

A clean kitchen makes for a happy home. Please clean up after yourself. If you
use a dish, then wash, dry, and put it away. If you use the stove, oven, counter,
table, etc. Clean it up.
We love help in the kitchen with meals and snacks. Always ask before getting
any food out. You may write your meal or snack suggestions on a post it and put
it on the fridge. We will do our best to add your suggestions to our menu.

The menu will be posted on the fridge and whiteboard, please check there
before asking what we are having for dinner.
Ask first. We have plenty of food on hand, but you need to ask before you eat.

If you do not like what we are eating at a meal, you may quietly make yourself a
peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Food is to be kept and eaten in the kitchen and dinning room.

(Children over the age of 13 may eat in living room or family room on special occasions.)

If you get it out, put it away, right away.
