Our Meals on Wheels project, part of the larger ecumenical “Take and Eat” program, has been cooking on Saturdays and delivering approximately 70 meals on the fourth Sunday of each month since September of 2005 . Our recipient list includes people referred by Elder Services, local churches and a few members of our congregation.
We are blessed with a talented and dedicated cooking crew who have prepared everything from mounds of mashed potatoes to mini meatballs, bagged innumerable baked goods, produced dozens of cookies and bars, served up approximately 850 meals and keep the kitchen and our supplies in good order. We have seven delivery routes each month and our faithful delivery drivers not only get the meal to the recipient but deliver cheer and companionship, reporting back if they encounter any concerns.
More than two-dozen people regularly tie on aprons to help cook and/or package and bag the meals: a dozen more bake the luscious desserts and twenty or so have lent their time and autos to deliver the meals.
We welcome all who wish to be part. Cooking skills are not required! We prepare the meals from 9 am to noon on Saturday and deliver them on Sunday after the worship service. Check the events calendar for the next session (usually the fourth weekend of the month), or call the church office to find out how to get on the list of people delivering food.
