These deliveries can be done alone, but are easier in pairs. If you wish to volunteer with a partner, please come with a person from your household.
Importance: Food insecurity is always a prevalent concern for people living in Episcopal Community Services’ supportive housing sites, but right now, the need for nutritious meals is exacerbated. Throughout our buildings, seniors and people with compromised immune systems constitute more than half our residents. We need dependable volunteers to ensure our residents don’t have to decide between accessing meals and protecting their well-being.
Description: Volunteers will pick up meals from the SF Food Runners kitchen once a week and deliver them to three to four ECS supportive housing sites in SOMA or the Tenderloin. These are curbside drop offs; there will be no contact with the residents.
Need equipment: Volunteers must have a valid driver’s license, insurance, and a vehicle capable of shuttling 150 - 200 individually packaged meals. Volunteers must wear a face mask and gloves. Dollies and hand trucks are useful, but not required.
Needed skills: Volunteers should enjoy a commitment to battling food insecurity, have excellent attention to detail and respect deadlines and commitments.
Reporting Requirements: Volunteers are expected to report to Volunteer Coordinator via text or email after their deliveries are completed.
Please reach out to the Volunteer and Events Coordinator, Emily San Nicolas, email@example.com for more information.
