Take & Eat
Next Delivery: Saturday September 11th
Who We Are:
The Take & Eat program was introduced to All Saints Church back in February of 2018. The mission of this program was to serve those in need at least one weekend a month where Meals on Wheels does not deliver. All Saints Church started off serving the community on the 1st Saturday of the month. Soon after the Take and Eat Program was moved to the Second Saturday of the month.
At the height or COVID-19, this program was placed on hold. During our final delivery at that time, we provided a large bag of non-perishable goods and a generous gift card to a local restaurant. When we were ready to start the program again, we decided it was too soon to start delivering hot meals based on COVID-19 Guidelines. To continue to serve our community, we decided to proceed with the delivering of non-perishable goods under the program name of Helping Hands.
We are now proud to announce that with the help of the Ware Knights of Columbus, we have returned to hot meals being delivered on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
