Deliver groceries to home-bound clients
Home delivery volunteers commit to regularly delivering nutritious groceries to our senior and homebound clients.
This opportunity is a hands-on activity and is open to individuals who are at least 18 years old, can pass a background check and provide proof of auto insurance and a valid CA driver’s license. As volunteers, you use your own vehicle, mileage and gas to deliver food.
As a home delivery volunteer, you will work onsite at the distribution location and help prepare food for delivery. You will load boxes, so you must be able to lift up to 25 pounds. You must follow a pre-established route, follow food safety and COVID-19 health guidance, and have excellent client service skills that include a desire to interact with older clients or clients with disabilities.
Once you have completed your first volunteer shift, you can decide if you would like to commit as a long-term volunteer. If you would like to move forward, you must clear a background check before volunteering as a home delivery driver again.
