Meals on Wheels
presents a great opportunity for members of Southern Hills Mennonite Church to help the area in the immediate vicinity of the church. We currently deliver a route on Fridays that serves 8-10 home bound individuals in the neighborhood just north of the church.How does it work? How much time does it take? When it is your day to deliver, you pick up the meals at Highland Park Methodist Church, deliver them, and then return the empty coolers back to the Highland Park Church. The meals are picked up between 11:00 and 11:15 a.m. Each route comes with a list of the clients and then a very detailed set of directions on how to get from one house to the next. Each route takes an average of 1 hour to deliver.
Delivering meals to those in need, especially to those in the church neighborhood, is a great opportunity for Southern Hills to be a missional church. Our delivery is part of the larger mission of meals on wheels to provide nutritional meals to the homebound and elderly in our community. Southern Hills contributes to the nearly 1200 meals that are delivered in the Topeka and surrounding areas each day.
