The Lexington Meals on Wheels project started on October 27th, 1969 in Barbara Robertson’s kitchen serving five clients. Barbara was the wife of Second Presbyterian’s pastor at the time and served with Meals on Wheels in their Flagship unit in Baltimore. Shortly afterward, the renovation of the kitchen at Second was completed, and meals have been prepared and packed there ever since, except the year Second’s new kitchen was being constructed and Temple Adath Israel hosted the service. Rotating menus with balanced nutritional meals were planned and monitored by Marion Webster from Second Presbyterian and Helen Ward from Trinity Hill United Methodist.
