CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) -Friday, July 29th is National Lasagna Day, and to mark the occasion, we’ve teamed up with Lasagna Love to prepare dinner for families at the Ronald McDonald House in Akron.

Lasagna Love is a grass-roots organization which connects home cooks with households in need. The volunteer lasagna chefs are matched with someone who makes a request, and they prepare a tray of lasagna to deliver, no questions asked.

Recipients are a variety of people, from the disabled or shut-in, to single parents, seniors, and health care providers in need of a hot, home-cooked meal.

I spoke with the founder of Lasagna Love, Rhiannon Menn, who says they recently reached an important milestone, having feed one million people through their efforts.
