Martha’s Meal Ministry
After a few of our parishioners got sick or hospitalized and couldn’t provide meals for themselves or their families, some concerned and loving members of St. Bart’s bought, prepared and delivered meals to them for days. However, it was becoming too much for two or three individuals to handle. Finally, we realized that there’s a need to join the growing number of parishes who have established a ministry to cater to the needs of their parishioners who also need similar help.
A few of our parishioners have indicated their willingness to help provide food for sick parishioners who could be in need of emergency meals. The need to avoid overburdening the same volunteers, to provide opportunities for other parishioners to share their gifts of time, talent, treasure, and to better coordinate our efforts for better results, gave birth to St. Bart’s Martha’s Meal Ministry.
The ministry is not like other standard ministries but will consist of loose volunteer members who could opt in or out at any point in time. Their activities will be coordinated by a team of two or three volunteers.
Purpose/Goals of the Ministry:
Those who could cook – either at home or at the school kitchen
Those who could deliver the food
Do you like to cook?
If yes, then come share your gift of talent, time and treasure
Note: You do not need to make large quantities – single or double services will mostly be enough.
Can’t cook but can drive?
Delivery people are also needed.
If you have it in your heart and kitchen to help out now and then, please call the parish office at 914-965-0566
Volunteers are called upon when a need is identified. This might happen on an average of once in two months or less. Meals can also be prepared in advance and frozen in our Food Pantry freezer.
There will be no meetings.
Ability to cook or purchase a meal and a heart willing to help others in their time of need.
