Instructions are as follows. Go to this link: or call the church office and Ann will sign you up. Please email Jenni Jones before your signup week at and ask how many meals they will need for that Wednesday. Then arrange delivery of meals to the Green Receiving door at 1100 E.

If you would like to order meals but need help financially to do so, also contact the church office for reimbursement.
