Three years ago today, on January 17, 2010, The King's Kitchen delivered it's very first meal to area shut-ins.
There are 5 delivery routes with a 2 people delivery team on each route. A meal has been served every Tuesday (with the exception of of a couple of snow/ice days & this past Christmas). The cooking team; composed of Sherrie, Mickey, Susan, Arlene & Eunice begin arriving at 8:30. In October we added an extra meal of soup and crackers or bread, to be enjoyed either that night or the next day. Mother-daughter team of Gayle & Jodi joined us to take care of this and they are already hard at work when we get there at 8:30.
This year, 1-1-12 to 1-31-12, we served a total of 2,541 meals at an average cost of $2.56. We delivered 51 weeks and did not deliver on Christmas Day, which fell on a Tuesday this year. The cost of this ministry is supported totally by designated offerings from the church membership and has never lacked for funds & support. The meal consists of a main dish, vegetable, starch, bread & butter, & milk. In addition, ladies of the church supply cakes, pies, cookies, puddings, jello, various desserts each and every week.
