Delivery of Healthy Eats to People's Homes

DURATION

1-2 hours

WHERE

Pick-up from 59 Inner Belt Road, Somerville MA and delivery (to 8-11 families) in Cambridge

WHEN

Commit to a twice a month regularly scheduled route on either a Friday, Saturday, OR Sunday from 11:00am to 12:00pm 

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

Must have access to a car & be willing to attend a virtual 15 min driver training call.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

With your help, we bring fresh fruits, vegetables and basic pantry items (not meals) directly to the homes of qualifying low-income Cambridge residents who are unable to access traditional food pantries due to illness or disability and do not have relatives or caretakers who are able to assist with groceries. 

DESCRIPTION

Help deliver groceries to those in need.  The Healthy Eats Home Delivery program differs from “meals-on-wheels” type programs because we bring groceries – not prepared meals –  to our clients, allowing recipients to cook and prepare their own meals. Home Delivery gives seniors and people with disabilities more control over their meals, while providing a supportive service to those who cannot access traditional food pantries or have a support system in place for regular, healthy and nutritious food.


ITEMS NEEDED

Must have access to a car.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Teen volunteers need to submit a parent/guardian consent form. Volunteers under 15 years old need to be accompanied by an adult during their volunteer shift.
