WEEKDAY Elk Grove or Schaumburg Township Home Delivered Meals Drivers

Weekday Regular-Route Drivers Needed

for Elk Grove and/or Schaumburg Townships

YOU can help older adults remain independent in their own homes!

Our Home-Delivered Meals program makes 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. Home-Delivered Meals are delivered three days a week (no weekend deliveries). Most drivers take one route per week (Mondays, Wednesdays and/or Fridays) for about two hours per route. Rest assured, we do try to work as best we can with your schedule.

  • The Meals program is not just about dropping off boxed- or bagged-meals. It is intended to enhance older adults’ safety through wellness checks and to provide some sort of human contact throughout the week.
  • 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 10 miles of your location in Elk Grove Township and/or Schaumburg Townships.
  • Every meal delivered by a volunteer offers Kenneth Young Center staff the opportunity to increase the quality and amount of their time they can spend with participants in our Older Adult programs.
