Chefs Who Care is a ministry under Fellowship that exists to provide meals to an individual or family in need because of illness, surgery, childbirth, bereavement, or other similar life event. Generally we offer meals for a two week time period; three times a week for a total of six meals.
Participation is simple, easy, and can be very rewarding. We have a number of “chefs” who are on a contact list. When a need arises the leader of the ministry contacts all the chefs, describes the need and who it is for, along with any dietary or other restrictions, and the chefs then sign up for the provided time slots. All of this is done through the web based program Meal Train which is very intuitive and easy to use.
This is a wonderful ministry for keeping in touch with members and their families who are going through either a hardship or a time consuming life change such as a new baby. It lets our church family know how much they are loved and appreciated.
How YOU can help/Role of Volunteers (what you would be doing):
If you were to volunteer to make meals you would be placed on the list of Chefs. When a need arises, you will be sent a link to the Meal Train site and will be able to sign up to make as many or few meals as you would like. You will be able to pick your day for delivery and can even enter what you are making so we can avoid doubling a recipe.
You would then contact the person in need the day of to confirm that you are on the way before dropping off the meal. It is recommended that you use disposable containers to make cleanup easier and to avoid losing your dishes.
