Meal train

Serving others by providing meals

WHAT IS THE MEAL TRAIN MINISTRY ABOUT?

One of the practical ways we serve people is through providing dinner meals during difficult or challenging moments in their lives. This is a very tangible way to care for and serve those in our Jarvis family. It can also serve as a powerful witness to the love of Christ to a friend or family member in need.  Generally, a Meal Train can cover several days or even weeks worth of dinners for a person or family in need. These meals may be home-cooked, purchased from a local restaurant, or even a restaurant delivery or gift card.

WHAT TYPE OF OCCASIONS WOULD CALL FOR A MEAL TRAIN?

There are any number of challenging moments that an individual or family may face where meals would help ease the burden. Here are a few examples:
  • Bringing home a new baby
  • Having a family member in the hospital
  • Having a family member recovering at home from surgery or illness
  • The death of a loved one
  • A new family has just moved into the area
