Meal preparation starts early each morning at the Charles Town Presbyterian Church.  A typical meal consists of a meat, fish, or casserole; two vegetables, fruit, bread, margarine, dessert and beverage.  Special care is taken for those requiring diabetic meals or have critical individual needs. The prepared meals are packed by volunteer packers and placed into hot and cold food boxes for delivery.  The volunteer drivers and visitor load the food boxes in their vehicles for delivery throughout the county.  The county is served via  routes requiring 1 ½ to 2 hours to complete.

The program is carried out through the efforts of 80 dedicated volunteers, one paid part time cook/kitchen manager, and two paid part-time schedulers/office administrators.
