The “More than Meals” program is a ministry that falls within the scope of the St. John Ladies Philoptochos Society.
Under the direction of Virginia Theodore, members meet once per month, on a weekday, at the church kitchen to prepare a complete meal. These meals are then delivered to the homes of parish members that are elderly or may have hardships leaving their home, have had a recent death in their family, have had recent surgery, etc. Upon delivery, the Philoptochos member sits and enjoys fellowship with the recipients, if welcomed. On average, 25 meals per month are prepared and served.
While the program is funded by Philoptochos, it has been well received since its inception in June 2018 and has been gifted with monetary donations to help offset costs.
If you care to join in the fun and fellowship of this rewarding and delightful program, please contact Virginia Theodore or the church office.
