About


Become a ride along volunteer today and bring healthy meals to home bound seniors today! About

As a ride along volunteer with Chicken Soup Brigade, you get the best of both worlds-client interaction and food distribution. To start off the day, volunteers meet our staff driver at our food production center in Georgetown and help load the truck. From there you're on your way to client's homes where you help our staff driver deliver meals and fresh groceries. Voila...easy! Did we mention you don’t even need a car?

Shift: Fridays from 9:00am-1:00pm; 3 month commitment

Requirements:

  • Ability to lift 30 pounds.
  • Friendly demeanor.
  • Quick on your toes.
  • Ages 16+ are welcome.
  • No car needed (our staff drive...YAYA!)

A little about Lifelong's food program, Chicken Soup Brigade
Lifelong’s food program, Chicken Soup Brigade, improves the nutritional health of individuals living with chronic conditions and hunger. We recognize the importance of nutrition to overall health. It has the power to reduce symptoms of many illnesses. It can minimize medication side effects. And it can provide comfort when it is needed most.

Chicken Soup’s clients have specific health challenges, such as HIV, diabetes, kidney disease, cancers, or disabling arthritis. Most are living below the Federal Poverty Level, and all require assistance in managing their nutritional health. Chicken Soup offers a comprehensive food and nutrition program designed not only feed people but to nourish them
