Meals on Wheels is Looking for Some Help


all lanes11A

Almost 20% of Seniors 65 years and older in Contra Costa County live below the Federal Poverty Level. 14% are food insecure and those numbers are growing!

Our Meals on Wheels program serves more than 750 homebound, frail, and food insecure seniors every day and relies heavily on 350 drivers to deliver those meals.

According to Nancy Raniere, Meals on Wheels Program Specialist, “The need for drivers in Antioch, Pittsburg, and Bay Point is critical. Many of our drivers vacation during the summer months which impacts us greatly. We have a desperate need for drivers and substitute drivers.”

Volunteer driving is a 2 hour commitment once a week. Delivery is Monday through Friday between 10:30am and 12:30pm.

Please consider becoming a volunteer driver and help us feed our seniors in need of healthy, nutritious meals. You will make a tremendous difference in the quality of their lives.
