9:00 am - 12:00 noon

On Tuesday, Aug. 9, our group of nine friends and members of Old Otterbein UMC drove to Milton Street to prepare food in Moveable Feast's kitchen and learn more about this mission.

The volunteer coordinator briefed us. Moveable Feast provides free food to those with life threatening illnesses who are referred by their doctors. If young dependents are in the home, they too are provided with food.

When we arrived, a crew was already busy in the kitchen - under the chef's supervision. This crew is part of an on-going training program to teach individuals the skills needed to earn Safe Serve certification and prepare for work in commercials and hospital kitchens upon completing the multi-month course.

After placing our belongings in a locker, we each got a hairnet, washed our hands and donned apron and gloves. Then the chef gave us tasks - most volunteers filled and sealed the food trays [like a frozen dinner], while three of us took cases of fresh plums and filled bags with 5 each to be delivered to the clients in addition to the prepared meals.

Then we all helped with 'stacking'. A full set of identical meal trays was placed on tables, 3 rows by 30! Then a different set of meals was set on top of these, then a third, fourth fifth and sixth. Each six-tray stack is then put into its individual bag and tied off - ready for delivery by other volunteers who drive to the clients' homes.

Our final task was clean-up, sweeping the floor and washing the tables.

Hope you will join us for either a Tuesday or Saturday morning this fall as we plan monthly returns to help this worthy organization feed those in need. NEXT days are Saturday, Oct. 22, 9 am -noonTues. Dec. 13 and Sat. Jan 21.  Carpooling is encouraged.
