Every Tuesday for the past 20+ years volunteers from Lutheran Church of Our Savior have prepared and delivered meals for 15 women participating in a substance abuse counseling and treatment program at My Father’s House in Gloucester City. Director Miriam Broderick says when she first started My Father’s House she approached all the churches in Haddonfield to help out. Only LCOS responded, and has continued to so do for two decades.
The women look forward to and greatly enjoy their weekly communal meal provided by LCOS. For some, Broderick says, it may be the only home-cooked meal they have all week. For LCOS to continue this uplifting social ministry, cooks and drivers are needed to fill out the 2019 calendar. Ideally, the person cooking will deliver their meals to MFH, an easy 15-minute drive from LCOS, but if that is not a possibility, delivery arrangements will be made (that’s why a pool of drivers is needed; drivers will have at least a week’s notice).
We’re hoping to expand the pool of cooks in 2019 to share the joy, so, how about you? Consider contributing your famous chili, secret-recipe casserole, or award-winning chicken dinner. A “meal” consists of an entree, a side (such as a salad or veggie) and a dessert. Meal deliveries can take place any time Tuesday 9 am-4:30 pm; the folks at MFH will help unload your car. If delivery is needed, cooks should have their ready-to-go meal, labeled “MFH,” in the LCOS kitchen by noon Tuesday so someone can deliver it.
