Coordinate/Support a Delivery Route
Your church, civic group, or business can sign up to deliver meals. One person serves as the group coordinator, a liaison to schedule and communicate with group volunteers. ‘The Group’ might be scheduled for one or two days a month, but each volunteer would actually deliver less often.
