- COPY - Help a senior with food access!

Save to Favorites



Assist a senior with healthy food access by delivering groceries , grocery shopping with or with a senior, curbside pick-up.

We often use of apps such as InstaCart and Uber Eats for online grocery shopping and food delivery. The ease of access is something many of us take for granted and is a challenging barrier for our seniors who are not as tech savvy or do not trust the new online era of food access.

This opportunity puts you in the unique position to assist seniors with: understanding how to shop for groceries online, walking them through the curbside process, shopping with in-person or simply picking their groceries for them.

The choice is 100% based on your preference; all volunteer opportunities are self-assigned through our online portal with no minimum time commitments. Training is online and takes approximately 25 minutes to complete.

Thank you for reading our opportunity! Vince Morency- Volunteer Coordinator

About Drive A Senior-ATX


2601 Exposition Blvd., Austin, TX 78703, US

Mission Statement

Enabling older adults to live independently, avoid social isolation, and age in place by providing free volunteer-based transportation and support services.



  • the Austin Metro area is home to the second-fastest growing population of seniors in the country?
  • recently, approximately 1 in 3 AUSTIN seniors reported feeling lonely, anxious, and/or experienced depressive disorder symptoms?
  • on average, seniors make three times as many visits to the doctor as people between the ages of 22-44?
  • it is predicted that by 2050, less than 50% of Central Texas senior adults will have adequate access to public transit?
  • roughly 40% of Travis County seniors are malnourished or at risk for malnourishment?

Founded in 1985, Drive a Senior-ATX is a local non-profit that provides free transportation and other support services to home-bound isolated senior citizens. The two main goals of our agency are to provide Austin seniors with easy access to both medical care and healthy food options.

Volunteering with us is easy! There are no minimum time commitments, and you schedule yourself using your smart phone or computer. Completion of a 30-45 minute training/registration is all you need to get started; we even pay for your background check!
