In just one hour you can help deliver a nutritious meal, a friendly visit and a safety check to a senior living in Tillamook.

Our meal site operates Monday - Friday from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. Times are flexible and vary depending on volunteer duty.

As a volunteer you can:

PACKAGE

Help in the kitchen by packaging meals for delivery.

DELIVER

Pick up meals at our location and hand-deliver them directly to seniors' homes. One volunteer drives the route accompanied by another volunteer who delivers "walks" the meal to the senior's door step.

SERVE

Assist with organizing, washing dishes and cleaning up at our meal site.

We have experienced an increased demand for meals by seniors impacted by COVID-19. We practice contactless delivery and social distancing. Masks are required. Gloves, masks, and hand sanitizers are available to all our volunteers.

All volunteers will need to complete an application, orientation, and successfully pass a background check. Driver's must provide valid driver's license and proof of insurance.
