Make a Difference! Make a FRIEND!
Last year we delivered over 18,000 nutritious meals to home-bound older adults. Meals Drivers go to a central location to pick up the meals to be delivered. They may be responsible for delivering anywhere from 3 to 8 meals during their shift (i.e., if there is a singular drop-off point, as in an apartment complex, more meals may be delivered). The purpose of the program is two-fold: first as a nutritional program and second as a safety/wellness-check. Because our clients may be at-risk, and the program is really relationship-driven, we ask that Drivers be willing to commit to the program for at least 6 to 9 months. The time to actually drive a route is usually one hour or less. A Driver may commit to take a route on 1 to 5 days (Mondays through Fridays only, generally from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.), and/or act as a substitute driver, according to their wishes.
