Deliver Meals to Seniors with your Family this Summer

Looking for a meaningful activity to do with your children this summer?
Another reason delivering Mobile Meals is a great volunteer opportunity: You can do it with your kids! In fact, we encourage volunteer drivers to bring their children or grandchildren along.

Delivering meals as a family is an excellent way to teach children about community responsibility and the importance of nutrition. For many recipients, the daily visit from volunteers is the only human contact they’ll have all day, so imagine the joy on their faces when they’re greeted by smiling children! It also provides children the opportunity to build relationships with seniors and people from different walks of life in your community. It’s a flexible commitment for families that only takes a couple of hours (roughly 10am – Noon).
A short orientation is conducted before you leave for your first route delivery. You can volunteer any day Monday – Friday during the summer / school breaks whenever works best for you. Students can log valuable service hour time while making an impact in the lives of homebound seniors.
