MOBILE MEALS OF WESTFIELD
Mobile Meals of Westfield, a small non profit serving meals to clients in 7 surrounding towns, is looking for a new board member whose primary responsibility will be shopping for fresh food every Monday morning. In addition to shopping, all board members must attend the monthly board meetings and participate in other efforts to promote the organization. We adhere strictly to all covid protocols as we are a food service, often for our older neighbors. We are currently doing contact-less deliveries to coolers at our client's homes, however, normally part of our service is to visit with our clients, providing vital contact with homebound individuals. We are not part of Meals on Wheels, a federally funded program for which cleints must meet criteria. We serve anyone who wants our service regardless of age, income, living situation, disability etc. The position will start in October, as we will transition from our current shopper to our new board member.
About MOBILE MEALS OF WESTFIELD
170 ELM ST, WESTFIELD, NJ 07090, US
Mobile Meals is a non-profit, voluntary community service providing hot meals 5 days a week to anyone who can not prepare their own meals. Our purpose is to serve our neighbors nutritious meals and to provide vital daily contact. We employ an Operations Director and a Chef, but all food packers and delivery personnel are volunteers, including members of the Board of Trustees. Our service is available on a permanent or temporary basis to anyone regardless of age, income or living situation.
Founded in 1968 and serving 7 local communities, we strive to keep costs to our clients as low as possible via grants and an annual appeal. All meals are partially subsidized, however, so fundraising is an ongoing initiative.
