Weekday SUBSTITUTE Home-Delivered Meals Drivers for Elk Grove Township

Weekday Substitute Drivers Needed

for Elk Grove Township

A little over one hour a week is all it takes to help an older adult remain independent in their own home!


Substitute Home-Delivered Meals Drivers make a big difference in an older adult’s life. Last year Drivers delivered over 36,000 meals to at-risk, home-bound, older adults in Elk Grove and Schaumburg Townships. Our regular-route drivers occasionally need a break, and that is where YOU may help! When a regular driver can’t make it, we will call you to see if you are available to take their route.

Drivers are needed over the noon hour. You use your vehicle to provide hot and nutritious meals, wellness checks and a friendly smile to home-bound older adults.

  • Routes are kept within 8 miles of your location in Elk Grove Township
  • Each route takes about one and one-half hours to complete (from about 11:30 AM to 1 PM)
  • Routes are driven during the normal business week (Mondays through Fridays; no weekends)

(Kenneth Young Center is a local, community mental health and older adult services provider. For almost 50 years, we have served people to help them feel good, do better and find solutions. For more information, visit our website at www.kennethyoung.org.)
