We Have the Meals, We Need the Wheels

Delivery Associates preparing to deliver meals to seniors.

Meals on Wheels Diablo Region is currently hiring delivery associates to support the growing number of senior clients throughout East & Central Contra Costa County. Drivers pick up meals, deliver them to homebound older adults who cannot cook for themselves, then return the empty containers to the pickup location. Deliveries take about two hours and cover about 20 senior homes. Part-time drivers work Monday through Friday, starting at 9:30 am.

“Meals on Wheels Diablo Region is committed to making sure no clients go without access to food,” explains Poonam Khiyara, Nutrition Services Division Manager. “We strive to have a team of drivers that help us deliver to our clients, come rain or shine, to help us with the growing need of seniors. Last month, our team served over 1,600 clients!”
