About

As a Home-Delivered MEALS DRIVER, you will use your vehicle to provide hot meals to home-bound Seniors. You will pick up the meals at a predefined location (within 5 miles of you).

The meals are delivered over the noon hour to about eight elderly people on your route. Meals Drivers help Seniors maintain their independence in their own homes. Not only do you provide healthy, nutritious meals and a friendly smile, but you also act as a direct link to the outside world for many home-bound Seniors.
