pickupWe try to keep your days of Volunteering very efficient, each time you will;
1. Pick up your Meals (in insulated coolers) for delivery at Penick Village.
2. Check your route sheet for the days deliveries and any special instructions
3. Deliver your meals between 11am - 1:30
4. Return the empty containers to the kitchen when finished with your route for the day

The whole delivery process takes 1-2 hours. Not much time, but the impact for those who recieve the meals is enormous.

Today, we have more than 100 dedicated Volunteers who donate their time and use of their vehicles to deliver an average of 100 meals each weekday, 260 days a year to those in need.  We anticipate that our Volunteers will deliver approximately 24,000 meals this fiscal year.

The Volunteers pick up the meals, which are in insulated containers, from the kitchen around 11:00 each morning, Monday thru Friday. They deliver the meals according to their route sheets and then return the containers to the kitchen when they are done. This whole process takes 1 - 2 hours.

Our volunteers can deliver as many days as they wish. Each Volunteer is given a weekly calendar for assigned for assigned group. As much as possible we prefer to have the same route for our volunteers so our recipients feel comfortable with who is dropping off their meals. This allows for our volunteers and recipients to get to know each other. This is important because in addition to receiving a hot meal, our recipients also enjoy some fellowship with our caring volunteers. Our daily visits help give the families & friends of our recipients peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are safe and sound for another day.
