About

Looking for a way to make a difference in your community?

We think volunteering should feel good and be fun!

Join our volunteer team and begin by bringing a meal to someone like Dolores. We began serving Miss Dolores about a year ago when a neighbor called about her - concerned about her not eating properly. With no family in the area, widowed and in her 80's, Dolores found it difficult to get enough nourishment each day and her health was failing. Upon enrollment she shared how she stretched a can of soup for lunch and dinner sometimes if she wasn't able to prepare something. Now she eagerly looks forward to the knock on the door by the Volunteer with her meal - "Oh my - chicken, vegetables, a banana and cookies? Each meal is my favorite & each volunteer is my favorite too!"

We have many more stories just like that of Dolores - and more out there who need what a good meal delivered by a friendly face can bring them.

In fact, that's our tagline - "A meal and so much more"

So come join us & see how 2 hours a week can make a world of difference in someone's life.

We currently need delivery volunteers in the Lake Worth through Palm Beach Gardens areas, as well as help in the kitchen plating and packing the meals.

Can't commit to one day a week due to your schedule? Why not be a substitute volunteer - we need subs every week!

Please call us if you'd like to check us out by visiting our kitchen or attend a voluntteer orientation. (561) 802-6979
