MCH Meals on Wheels is now serving 162 people a day in Knox County, a 33% increase since the beginning of 2020. The old oven in the MCH kitchen on Summer Street in Rockland was showing signs of its age. To keep up with the big increase in demand since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis and to remain faithful to their pledge to serve everyone in need with no waiting list, they needed a helping hand.
The Camden Rotary Club quickly stepped up and purchased a new Bronze Convection Oven, which was delivered and installed on May 19. An incredible gift at a moment of great community need.
The Camden Rotary Club is a volunteer service organization. They are ordinary business and professional people with a simple motto – “Service above Self.” Members donate their time and resources to help others and improve the quality of life, both in our local community and abroad. They enjoy the friendship and satisfaction of good people working together to make a positive difference in the world.
MCH empowers individuals, primarily older adults and people with disabilities, to maintain independent, active lives by providing them access to housing, Meals on Wheels and support services. Since 1969 MCH’s programs have provided a critical safety net for the most vulnerable members of our community; elderly and disabled individuals with few financial resources. The dedicated MCH team of service professionals, volunteer drivers, nutritionists, cooks, community partners, and donors is committed to helping them maintain their independence for as long as possible. MCH Meals on Wheels is the only Meals on Wheels program serving Knox County.
