We have been working with Picnic Hill Market, a new market in Shaker Heights, to provide food for our subscribers during this period of the pandemic. Picnic Hill Market, located at Fairmount Circle, is a gourmet market and café that opened its doors in January 2020. After just two months, when Governor DeWine shut down all restaurants, the owners Michael Miller and Shawn Brown decided to change course and provide carryout meal services. MOW contacted the owners and collaborated with them to establish a system of preparing meals for our clients that our volunteers can deliver to our subscribers.
One day each week, MOW is delivering multiple nutritious meals to help our subscribers stay healthy and independent. For the time being, we are using the generous donations we have received to pay for the meals. We will return to our subscription procedure soon, as we hope to get back to providing five meals a week. In the meantime, this system has allowed MOW to deliver food to our subscribers without our volunteers being directly involved in the food preparation.
In the photos below you can see one day of our Picnic Hill Market selections: meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans, chicken Vesuvio, and bread pudding with a whiskey cream sauce.
