Feed My Sheep in Waconia, Minnesota, has been serving a weekly meal every Wednesday night for the past five years. Feed My Sheep’s motto is, “Spreading a table in the presence of communities hungering for someone to know their name and that they matter.” Feed My Sheep provides an opportunity for human connection and community. This project will provide a website to post general information, a signup calendar for volunteer's who will be serving each month, list of special events, photos, map and location information, and PayPal link for donations. The primary technologies that the project is expected to use are: ADO.NET Entity Data Model, AJAX, C#, Silverlight 4.0, Bing Map, SQL Server 2008, and Blend 4.
