Food insecurity among the elderly is a growing challenge throughout our community. St. Augustine works to mitigate that challenge by providing a hot lunch Monday-Friday to homebound seniors who are unable to leave their homes due to illness, injury or disability. We are in need of a volunteer who is willing to make home visits to applicants requesting meal delivery to assess their qualifications for the program. Seniors applying for the meal program live in the South Broadway area, including Slavic Village and Newburgh Heights. These assessments are on an as-needed basis and hours and days are flexible based on your availabililty (averaging 10 hours per month).
