Substitute Home-Delivered Meals Drivers

Back-up Support, Home-Delivered Meals Drivers Needed

About one hour a week, that's what it takes to help an older adult remain independent in their own home!

Last year we delivered over 20,000 nutritious meals to home-bound older adults. Drivers make an important difference in an older adult's life by delivering nutritious meals, wellness checks and friendship. Drivers go to a central location to pick up the meals to be delivered on scheduled routes. When regular route driver's can't make it in for a day, Back-up substitute driver's are needed. It takes a little over an hour to help with our Home-Delivered Meals routes in Elk Grove and Schaumburg Townships. You will use your vehicle to provide hot meals to home-bound senior citizens. Routes are kept within 5 to 7 miles of your location in Schaumburg or Elk Grove Townships.

(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.)
