Help pack & deliver meals

INSTRUCTIONS TO PACK

Our packing and assembling volunteers are crucial to our operations. Many of our Elderly recipients live alone and in isolation, and our weekly deliveries of care packages provide sustenance, nutrition, and support and care in emotional health and wellbeing. 

 

We are ideally seeking volunteers who are team players and have a warm and positive attitude to help us pack/assemble in our different locations in/around the Lower Eastside. We require volunteers to multi-task and juggle multiple hats which include but are not limited to: packing/assembling, heavy lifting and transporting care packages & boxes of ingredients to and from our headquarters to load in/out of vehicles, organizing items in our storage space, tidying, and more. 

 

As an on-the-grounds operations volunteer, you must be:

  • Healthy and able-bodied

  • Available for 3-4 hours on Wednesdays. Dependent on which location you are assigned to, the start time will vary between 11am and 12:30pm and we begin promptly at the start time given. 

INSTRUCTIONS TO DELIVER

Our delivery volunteers are crucial to our operations. Many of our seniors live alone and in isolation, and our weekly deliveries are visits they look forward to.

  • Healthy and able-bodied

  • Have license to drive and own a car (or have access to one)
