Join a great team that portions, plates, and serves delicious hot meals to seniors each day, Monday through Friday at Riverbend Manor in West Sacramento.
You can choose one day a week, everyday, or any combination. The hours are 9:15am-12:30pm, but can be slightly adjusted based on your schedule.
For many of the seniors who dine here, this is the only hot meal they have each day.
This is a great opportunity that requires only the ability to follow directions, and to be friendly and cheerful with others! Volunteers are provided hairnets and gloves. Please remember to wear closed-toed shoes and clothes that can get a little dirty!
To nourish and enrich the lives of individuals in Yolo County with emphasis on those age 60 and older, by providing nutritious meals to active and home bound people; thereby, promoting their health, well-being and independence.
Meals on Wheels Yolo County (People Resources, Inc.) has been providing a daily hot meal to seniors in Yolo County for over 40 years. Freshly prepared hot food is delivered to sites in Woodland, West Sacramento, Winters and Davis. There, about 2/3 of the bulk food is packaged for home delivery by volunteers. Seniors look forward to their meal and to the personal attention of a familiar visitor. The other 1/3 of the food is plated and served to seniors who travel to the 4 senior centers to socialize over lunch.
Our organization needs volunteers to deliver meals and a friendly smile each day to seniors, particularly in our most difficult to serve communities. We also need volunteers in other areas, such as clerical, helping us care for our fleet of delivery vehicles, helping in our five kitchens, etc.
