Volunteer Drivers Needed for North Shore Meals on Wheels Deliveries

SeniorCare Inc. “Meals on Wheels” program is in need of volunteer drivers to deliver noon time meals to homebound seniors throughout the North Shore area. Anyone interested in volunteering one or more mornings a week will be greatly appreciated. Meals on Wheels drivers pick up fully prepared and packaged hot meals on the morning of each delivery.

SeniorCare’s Meals on Wheels program brings a daily meal right to the door for frail and homebound elders. Menus are designed by nutrition experts to meet the needs of older adults and are prepared by a professional caterer. In addition, homebound elders have a daily interaction with the delivery team—sometimes their only human contact that day. SeniorCare currently delivers Meals on Wheels to more than 550 elders each day. Annually, this means 136,216 home-delivered meals and 39,250 meals served at dining sites in Beverly, Essex, Gloucester, Hamilton, Ipswich, Manchester, Rockport, Topsfield, and Wenham.

For information, contact SeniorCare’s Nutrition Department at 1-866-927-1050 or 978 281-1750, Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
