Prepared Meals for Delivery
We have two variations of this program:
- Using the kitchen at St. Simon’s (on Trafalgar Rd), each month, volunteer teams of 3-5 people shop for and cook approximately 100 – 120 meals cooked about 120 meals in the kitchen at St. Simon’s Church in Oakville. The meals are packaged in 50 or 60 two-serving plastic containers and taken to Boffo’s Delicatessen (on Kerr Street) for freezing and temporary storage. The frozen meals are later delivered by St. Jude’s volunteers to the Links2Care office in Oakville.
Links2Care is a social service agency whose case managers deliver the frozen meals to their clients who are homeless or homebound and unable to cook for themselves.
Volunteer teams can choose the meals they want to prepare from within a rotation of items, including Shepherd’s Pie, chili, sausage, and lentil soup, roast pork with sweet potatoes and corn.
- Beginning May 2021, we will be running a weekly Saturday program “Dinner at Your Door” that delivers hot, fresh prepared dinners to Links2Care clients in Oakville who are low-income elderly persons living alone in Oakville. The dinners will be prepared same day by volunteers from the “No One Goes Hungry’ Program, a grassroots organization in Milton and delivered same day to St. Jude’s. Our volunteers will meet at 3:00 pm on Saturday afternoon at St. Jude’s to pick up the dinners, and, working in pairs, will deliver them to the Links2Care clients.
Prepared Meals for Delivery is one of the programs set up through St. Jude’s Justice and Servant Ministry team. Dinner at Your Door is a new program, so we need volunteers to help get the program well established.
