Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels in Churchill BoroughChurchill Meals on Wheels is a non-profit organization that delivers meals to homebound seniors five (5) days a week and operates out of Beulah Presbyterian Church.

Providing an important service to residents of Churchill, this volunteer organization is always in need of additional manpower.

The staff includes cooks, those who donate desserts, and the delivery drivers.

Two (2) to three (3) times a month -about two (2) hours- or any amount of time you can give, is needed. The smiles and gratitude of the thankful recipients are very rewarding. Bonus: Not only does volunteering bring out one's best qualities and make an important difference in the lives of others, it has been proven that those who volunteer are happier people, experiencing a sense of achievement and personal fulfillment.

Although there is a nominal charge for the meals, the actual preparation of the meals and the delivering is done by volunteers. Each day's delivery includes a "brown bag" lunch, soup, and a hot meal. Special diets can be accommodated to a limited degree, such as low salt or diabetic.

The cost is $5 per day, and recipients can ask to receive a meal any number of days each week. Meals are delivered between 9:30 am and 11:00 am, Monday through Friday.

If you would like more information, are interested in volunteering, or if you have a friend, neighbor, or relative in need of this service, please call Judy Shepherd at 412-243-3413.
