You can help the Proviso community by delivering meals to homebound seniors in Melrose Park and surrounding areas.

Meal Delivery drivers are needed Monday thru Friday mornings. Volunteers can choose to help one day or week or more, depending on their schedule. A typical delivery route will take between 90 minutes and 2 hours to complete, so with just 2 hours a week you can change the life of a homebound senior.

Volunteers are reimbursed at a rate of 55 cents per mile while on their delivery route.

Note that we follow CDC COVID-19 social distancing guidelines for the safety of our staff, volunteers and Senior clients.

If you'd like to help change the life of a senior, please reply to this email or contact us at Volunteer@cnnssa.org.

Thank you!

Description

Join us for lunch!

Fight against hunger by giving back to the older adults in your community! The Community Nutrition Network needs your help serving meals at our café sites as well as delivering meals to homebound adults. These opportunities can last anywhere from 1-3 hours and are located at various sites throughout the northern Illinois area.

At The Community Nutrition Network, we strive to keep older adults and persons with disabilities an active part of their community by providing them with the support they need. Much more than a meal, our programs combat depression and isolation, offers companionship, and provides safety checks for homebound adults.
