In response to the COVID-19 crisis, USES launched an at-home food delivery program. Every other week, participating families receive boxes of fresh produce and high-quality dry goods to supplement food supplies and reduce the burden of food insecurity. Offering at-home delivery was a key component of our program’s success. We often heard from our families that food banks were not always aviable option, as they required access to transportation and often only operated during working hours.

USES needs approximately 7-8 drivers every week to deliver food boxes to food distribution participants. Drivers are welcome to pick-up between 2-6pm on Thursday afternoon and deliveries take between 45 to 90 minutes to complete. You can sign up to drive consistently (ex: every other week) or whenever you can fit it in your schedule.

Please contact Molly Leiker mleiker@uses.org if you have any questions.

Mission Statement

USES's mission is to harness the power of our diverse community to disrupt the cycle of poverty for children and their families.

As families stabilize and take advantage of opportunities for advancement, they are connecting to an inclusive community that is investing social capital and uniting for the success of all.
