|The purpose of Butler Meals on Wheels, Inc. is to provide excellent, nutritious, home-delivered meals to individuals in need within the service area comprising Butler city and it’s environs. The meals are provided to maintain adequate nutrition for those recuperating from illness and suffering impaired functional ability. Butler Meals on Wheels, Inc. strives to maintain clients in their homes for as long as possible, preventing institutionalization.|
|Our Daily Story|
Meals are prepared in the kitchen of St. Peter’s Anglican Church in downtown Butler. For a small charge each client receives two meals (one hot & one cold) which are delivered Monday thru Friday, except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Each day, about 11:15am, 24 volunteers go out in pairs (a driver and a deliverer) on 12 routes and deliver a hot (cooked that day) noon meal and a bag lunch for supper to 100 to 150 clients. The delivery provides a personal outreach to our neighbors on a daily basis. This keeps us alerted to any significant changes in their situation which may need to be attended to by family or medical personnel.
We are able to do this for three reasons: (1)The generousity of the Butler community who support us financially and (2)the many volunteers who come together every day to help prepare, package and deliver the meals(using their own cars) and (3)the dedication of our small paid staff.
We thank St. Peters Anglican Church for giving Meals-on-Wheels a home since 1986.
