Ever since the Meals on Wheels program started, First Church members have been involved in this mission to take meals to people who need nourishing meals brought to their door.
Besides providing food to individuals on a daily basis, the service also provides a daily contact for people who are homebound. Sometimes this is the only person they see in 24 hours.
We deliver meals to shut ins every Wednesday of the month. Delivery takes about an hour to deliver to the 17 homes on our route. Holly, one of our drivers and an accomplished photographer, takes a copy of one of her photographs to each of the people on the route for their enjoyment each time they deliver...two of her photos are seen to the right.
Our reward comes when we see a smile and hear a thank you as we place their noon meal in their hands.
