YOU can help older adults remain independent in their own homes!
Home-Delivered Meals Drivers make a big difference in an older adult’s life. Last year drivers delivered over 36,000 meals to at-risk, home-bound, older adults in Elk Grove and Schaumburg Townships. Home-Delivered Meals are delivered three days a week. Most drivers take one route per week (Mondays, Wednesdays and/or Fridays) for about two hours per route.
Since COVID began, older adults have been in the high-risk category. Demand for meals has increased significantly.
The Meals program is not just about dropping off boxed- or bagged-meals. It is intended to enhance older adults’ safety through wellness checks and to provide some sort of human contact throughout the week.
You use your vehicle to provide hot and nutritious meals, wellness checks and a friendly smile to home-bound older adults.
Routes are kept within 10 miles of your location in Elk Grove Township and/or Schaumburg Townships.
Every meal delivered by a volunteer offers Kenneth Young Center staff the opportunity to increase the quality and amount of their time they can spend with participants in our Older Adult programs.
