Senior Food Delivery

Save to Favorites

NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICES INC

We are looking for a handful of volunteers to deliver senior food boxes to our neighbors in need. We have found that many seniors in our community aren't visiting food pantries right now, due to concerns regarding Covid-19. NSI aims to deliver once monthly senior food boxes to 30-40 seniors once per month, to help get them through these difficult times.

This opportunity is flexible regarding dates and times, and can be completed any day of the week. If you can spare one day per month to deliver senior food boxes, please reach out to us! You will use your own vehicle, pick up senior food boxes from the pantry at 1950 N 4th Street, and deliver to the front porch of a list of seniors. You'll use a contactless delivery method to protect both yourself and the senior. Most of the seniors are located in the 43211 area.

You must be 18+ and have a valid driver's license and car insurance for this opportunity.
