Some attention needs to be focused on the situation with meals at this facility. In particular, menu planning and logistics are NOT coordinated in any useful sense -- menus are not being based on supplies on hand OR on meeting budget constraints. Meals have been served late, with major elements missing (no butter for bread or for making gravy, for example). Cucumber salad for 100 people involved the purchase of FOUR cucumbers; bananas purchased Friday for a fruit salad on Monday were left out all weekend in the heat, and were PAST ripe on Monday...

The person planning the menus is overloaded with other responsibilities, all of which are suffering, yet insists on micro-managing the entire process. From their Facebook page I understand that a long-term cook has just recently retired -- I have to wonder to what extent this ongoing issue was involved in that retirement.

suggest that there are major inefficiencies needing to be addressed in the meal planning operations.

Review from Guidestar

In early December I visited Florida United Methodist Children's Home with a group from Pine Castle United Methodist in Orlando. It was a great experience! The campus is much larger than I had imagined, it's a lovely setting with many trees, and the staff were friendly and seemed very caring. I was impressed that the children live in "cottages," each with a "mother and father" to give them guidance and love. (The cottages are usually a long house-like building that holds about 12 children.) They all live there together as a family and eat their meals together. Children also attend school, and have access to medical care and counseling. They have chapel services on campus, too. What a wonderful home for kids who have had a rough spot in life.

The Great!
