Elfinwild Meals Ministry
Contact: Dick Friedline - 412-486-8000

The Elfinwild Home Meals Ministry is an independent ministry of the Elfinwild Presbyterian Church.  The Ministry is led by the Manager, Dick Friedline, who is supported by a Head Cook, Pam Dudgeon and four part-time cooks as well as an active group of volunteers.  This Ministry team ensures that meals are prepared and delivered and available each day, except for a few major holidays.

The Meals Ministry serves over 70 clients each day with nutritious, well-balanced meals.  Special meals are prepared for those with various dietary requirements.

There is no financial need or other type of eligibility rule required for an individual to receive meals through this Ministry.  Some clients receive meals for a short period of time while recovering from an illness or injury.  Others receive meals on an ongoing basis.  For a small fee, clients receive one hot meal and one cold bagged meal each day.  Meals are delivered 5 days a week. 

Often the volunteer is the only contact some clients have on a daily basis.  Through these meals, clients not only receive proper nutrition, they also interact with the delivery volunteer.

The Meals Ministry is self-sustaining with income from the clients as well as donations from the Elfinwild congregation, members of the community, and many community and school district service groups.  The donations received are used for the day-to-day operating expenses for food purchases, salaries and equipment upkeep and repair.

Questions concerning this ministry, including how you can make a donation or become a volunteer, or how an individual becomes a client and receive meals should be directed to Dick Friedline at 412-486-8000.
