The pandemic has increased food insecurity for our most vulnerable neighbors. Help us deliver meals to older adults and individuals with disabilities -- those at the highest risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Our Meals on Wheels program delivers in NE Minneapolis, SE Minneapolis, and St. Anthony Village. Pick up time is at 11:10 a.m. The routes include approximately 8 to 12 stops and takes up to an hour.
Special notes: You must wear a mask. If you don't have one, one will be provided. We require our drivers to stay in close contact with us and recuse themselves, if they are not 100% healthy. You must use hand sanitizer between each stop (we will provide one).
Our current routine includes placing meals in plastic bags, putting them at clients' doors and then backing up six feet to ensure they answer. Our most vulnerable clients may need help bringing the meals inside.
Drivers can choose how many times a month they wish to deliver meals. Some people drive once a week, others once or twice a month. Some prefer to be on call and are prepared to fill in when others need to cancel.
