Deliver meals – Sign-up as a delivery volunteer. We’re practicing no-contact deliveries and are staggering food pickups outside to minimize person-to-person interaction.
Kitchen volunteering – We can safely accommodate individuals and groups (up to 6 people) to help with meal preparation and packing. You will be asked to adhere to our social distancing and mask rules to maintain a safe working environment. Starting July 1, when all volunteers are vaccinated, we will no longer require social distancing and mask-wearing.
Please donate. Your gift will help provide home-delivered nutritious meals to vulnerable individuals through this pandemic and beyond.
Using Facebook for birthday fundraisers or Food & Friends’ easy, do-it-yourself fundraising platform, you can create and personalize your own fundraising page. This is a great way to virtually come together with your friends and family to raise awareness and support of a cause you care about. We’ll provide plenty of help and resources to make it simple.
Home-Delivered Meals will be delivered once a week for the foreseeable future, rather than the prior 3-times per week schedule. Clients will still receive 18 meals per week and we continue to use our 11 specialized meal plans.
Groceries-to-Go clients will remain on their usual bi-weekly schedule, though some delivery dates have shifted.
