Help Deliver Healthy Meals throughout Nashville for FiftyForward Fresh Meals on Wheels

FiftyForward | http://www.fiftyforward.org

FiftyForward Fresh Meals on Wheels delivers healthy meals to the doorstep of older individuals on specific routes in the Nashville community. Recently, we expanded meal delivery into the Antioch, North and Northeast areas of Nashville. Many of the older individuals in this target area have not had meals delivered to them or the supportive care services they need. FiftyForward is moving forward in providing vital services to older adults in this region. We are currently looking for friendly, compassionate volunteers to deliver nutritious meals, create a social connection and report to the FiftyForward Fresh program any safety concerns noted upon delivering a meal.

  • We are currently looking for drivers to deliver meals Monday through Friday.
  • Routes are delivered Monday through Friday - Connect with us to see what days and routes are needed
  • Meals are picked up between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. from FiftyForward Patricia Hart building, located at 174 Rains Ave., Nashville, TN 37203
  • Routes take approximately 60 to 90 minutes to complete depending on the number of deliveries on the route and time spent with each client.
  • FiftyForward Fresh delivery drivers must complete a background check (paid for by FiftyForward).
  • Volunteer opportunity also includes signing up to be a substitute driver and pick up routes that need delivery when regular drivers are unavailable.

This is a rewarding volunteer opportunity that greatly impacts in positive ways the health and well-being of older individuals. This volunteer opportunity also creates a community connection that combats loneliness and social isolation many are currently experiencing. It is also a lot of fun to meet so many wonderful older individuals. We hope you can join our The FiftyForward Fresh Meals on Wheels Delivery TEAM!
