The Your Neighbors program provides meals, transportation and a friendly connection with the world outside for many people who are homebound in the Utica area. Volunteers cook food and prepare meals stored in Zion's freezers and are then delivered to homebound persons in need of food. Church members work together at annual summer cook-ins. Personal friendships have developed between the homebound and the volunteer who bring meals, provide transportation to doctor visits or shopping trips. People who fall through the cracks of other programs often benefit by the generosity of this program that serves the people of the greater Utica area. Some Zion members are actively involved as Your Neighbors volunteers, other members choose to support this non-profit organization with their monetary contributions.
