The remaining food after serving all 371 (MOW) clients was packaged for our frozen meals program for those on the waiting list.
Wind Creek Hospitality staff and volunteers from MAX Credit Union and Old Ship AME Church along with MACOA staff worked diligently to sort, package, and prepare meals for pick up by dedicated community volunteers who delivered the hot nutritious meal to our homebound Seniors on 32 routes. The delicious menu prepared by Wind Creek included baked chicken, roasted vegetables, rice pilaf, a roll, a sweet apple pie, and water.
