St. Luke’s United Methodist Church was a 2020 $100,000 grant winner. St Luke’s has been a provider for meals on wheels for 40 years. In 2019, they were set to take over as coordinator for meals on wheels
for all of Oklahoma County. They came up with the concept of Elder Eats – which would provide supplementary meals and a wellness check to the client. Shortly after receiving the grant, the pandemic hit and the need for meals for the elderly was enormous. The Impact grant funded two vehicles (which bear the Impact logo!) to transport meals. The exposure from Impact also drew more partnerships, funding and volunteers. It became a catalyst for giving and growing on a very large scale. Prior to the grant, they served 700 meals a month. They now serve 19,000!!
