The Gathering

Did you know that The Meals on Wheels Program for Orange County started at St. Michael’s in 1972?

“The Gathering” as it is now known, has evolved since then and it delivers a hot meal every Tuesday to the Coalition for the Homeless, in downtown Orlando. The Gathering is a unique ministry organized to feed the homeless people in the Orlando area and is sponsored jointly by the Church of the Resurrection in Longwood. Since 1990 approximately over 200,000 meals have been fed to the homeless men, women, and children through this great outreach, but it takes a lot of resources.

“Joining Hands With Love to Serve the Hungry”

 

We would love to have your help anytime during Monday mornings, Tuesday mornings, or Tuesday afternoons!

If you can peel a potato or pick up a serving spoon, you’re qualified. No special skills are required. One or two hours a week would be sufficient. Please call the church office (407-843-8448) for more information.

Your help is also needed to help load the van or serve the food at the Coalition (a great experience for your children). We load the van with food from 6:00 to 6:30 PM. Serving the food at the Coalition for the Homeless lasts from 6:30 PM to 8:15 PM.
