Meals on Wheels seeks volunteers in Nanaimo

This are ongoing volunteer positions with Meals on Wheels for drivers and day captains

This are ongoing volunteer positions with Meals on Wheels for drivers to deliver hot, nutritious food throughout Nanaimo. Clients are generally older adults or persons with disabilities who may be isolated or homebound. The benefits of this program go beyond providing food – it is an opportunity to connect socially with clients and helps to enable them to remain longer in their own homes. Interested volunteers should be able to use a map or GPS system, and need to have their own, or regular access to, a reliable vehicle. Opportunities are also available for spare drivers who need more flexibility than a regular weekly schedule.

Volunteer day captains are also sought to provide leadership around the delivery of Meals on Wheels. Those interested would meet once per week with drivers to assign routes, facilitate meal pickup and provide support as required. Spare day captains positions are also available, allowing for more flexibility. Great communication skills and some experience in a leadership role would be great assets. The ability to read a map or use GPS and having access to a reliable vehicle are required.
