DELIVER MEALS TO PEOPLE FACING FOOD INSECURITY

Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco

These deliveries can be done alone, but are easier in pairs. If you wish to volunteer with a partner, you 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 during the COVID-19 crisis, the need for nutritious meals is exacerbated. Throughout our residential buildings, seniors and people with compromised immune systems constitute more than half of the residents, and to ensure their safety, they must stay inside. Providing meals for them at home is critical. Dependable volunteers are crucial to ensure our residents don’t have to decide between accessing meals outside of their homes and protecting themselves from chance of COVID-19 infection.

Description: Volunteers will pick up meals from the SF Food Runners kitchen once a week and deliver them to three 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 truck, van, or 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 sign into their shifts when they are onsite at the commercial kitchen and report to the Volunteer Coordinator via email once a week after their deliveries are completed.

Please reach out to the Volunteer and Events Coordinator, Emily San Nicolas, esannicolas@ecs-sf.org for more information.

Thank you!
