Our volunteer drivers deliver hot, nutritious meals every weekday to seniors in Contra Costa County that are homebound and unable to cook or shop for themselves. The visit also serves as a health and wellness check and a social connection.
WHAT DOES A HOME MEAL DELIVERY DRIVER DO?
Once a week, you pick up and deliver 12-16 meals to homebound seniors. Meals are packaged in thermal containers and stay hot for up to 2 hours for delivery between 10:00AM and 12:00 noon.
Along with meals, drivers deliver smiles and a lifeline connection. You check in with your clients and make sure they’re healthy and safe.
Detailed driving directions are included along with each meal. You’ll use your own car and must carry personal liability insurance and a smart phone.
A meal delivery route is ideal for a church or service group, so that each member drives just a few times a year, or more often if they wish.
If you are pressed for time, you can sign up to be a substitute Meals on Wheels driver. We would call you when a regular driver isn’t available.
