Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Meals on Wheels Yolo is a local nonprofit who has served seniors with hot lunch-time meals for over 41 years. We not only dleiver hot meals directly to the door of senior's homes, but we also operate congregate dining sites in Woodland, Winters, Davis, and West Sacramento. Often the only hot meal of the day, is the one that Meals on wheels volunteers bring. Many time the only person these seniors see all day, is the friendly one who brings them their meal.
Established in 1975, Elderly Nutrition provides a hot, nutritious noontime meal to senior citizens, age 60 and older, each weekday, through two primary programs. The Home Delivered Meal Program ("Meals on Wheels") provides an opportunity for "shut-ins" or homebound seniors to receive a hot, home delivered meal on a temporary or long term basis, for those seniors who cannot prepare meals for themselves and do not have family or friends to provide assistance. We provide important daily social contact, a safety net system and resource/referral services as needed. The Congregate Program operates within senior centers and community centers throughout Yolo County. We provide a hot meal to seniors that are more active and can go to the site to eat. Seniors get a chance to get out of their homes to socialize with friends and attend activities at the centers. Meals are served throughout Yolo County in the cities of Woodland, Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, Knight's Landing, and Esparto.
Last year we served over 89,000 noon-meals (approximately 325 per day) to close to 1,300 seniors 60 years and older throughout Yolo County.
