Neighborhood Meal & Enrichment Program

For twenty-eight years, the Neighborhood Meal and Enrichment Program (NMEP) has provided free warm, nutritious meals for the Wellington Heights, Mound View, and Oak Hill and other neighborhood children and their families during the summer months. Noon meals are prepared and served at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church with sponsorship and support of six community churches: Christ Episcopal, First Lutheran, First Presbyterian, Grace Episcopal, St. Paul's United Methodist, and Westminster Presbyterian. The meal is followed by the SPRINT enrichment program for children.

With 275 volunteers, the program served 6,024 meals to our neighbors in 2018.

If you would like to volunteer to work at Neighborhood Meals this summer, but never seem to have your calendar with you on Sunday mornings when the list of opportunities is available, here is a new way to sign up. Sign up at and look for an opening that fits your schedule. If you are signing up for the first time you'll need to set a password in case you need to change an opportunity. You can add, or delete, dates from that website. If you have questions, or would prefer signing up by phone, call Kate Buroker 362-5285, or email
