Mission: To provide the ease and comfort of home cooked meals for the families visiting their loved ones at the Levine & Dickson Hospice House at Southminster.
Volunteer Opportunities: St. Matthew parishioners provide meals during the months of July and December each year - dinner every Tuesday and Thursday and brunch/lunch on Saturdays. Volunteers serve individually or with groups to make a meal for 15-20 people consisting of a main dish, salad or vegetable, bread and dessert. Meals are delivered hot and ready to eat. Volunteers just drop off the food and do not have to stay. This is a great opportunity for families with teens, teaching them the value of compassion and affording the opportunity to pray for those who are seriously ill and their family members.
Time Commitment- 2-6 hours, depending on time needed to prepare meals.
To volunteer or ask a question, contact Pat White.
“It was such a joy having our family prepare and give a nice meal to the families at the Hospice House tonight!” Sara
“Why I made dinner for you tonight…I also know that there are a lot of days that caregivers survive on vending machine food, if any food at all. So for dinner I have made one of my family recipes…please enjoy and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to provide you with some food that I hope brings you some physical energy and maybe even some comfort, because, again, this was made just for you.” Jen
