Grange Underwrites Meal Delivery Program

Concerned about the issue of food insecurity and social isolation being experienced by many persons during the continuing COVID pandemic, Perry Valley Grange has announced plans for a free meal program getting underway this spring.

Grange president Renee Hetrick explains “Our Grange is dedicated to helping those in need and has decided to share our resources to provide both funding and manpower for the monthly meal delivery project. Local churches have been invited to partner with the Grange to identify persons in need of meals and then deliver ten meals each month.” Hetrick continued, “The cooperation and support from churches, other groups and community volunteers will determine the ultimate success and continuation of the program.” The first delivery on Saturday, March 13th was a simple meal of lasagna, garlic bread, green salad and apple crisp. Shown below are some candid shots of Grange and community volunteers preparing and packing the meals.

Churches that have accepted the invitation to deliver meals each month are: St. John (Barners') Lutheran, Liverpool; Central Baptist, Millerstown and St. Paul's Lutheran, Newport. Churches that have volunteered to prepare one of the monthly meals are: April 2021 - St. John (Barners') Lutheran, Liverpool; May 2021 - Central Baptist, Millerstown and June 2021 - Reward United Methodist, Millerstown.

Perry Valley Grange is providing financial assistance to the churches for the purchase of food and other supplies. Individuals and groups interested in helping with this project may contact Linda Byers at 717-315-5888 for details.
