Nutrition Program - Home Meal Delivery Driver: Scheduled

The City of Carlsbad is looking for volunteers who want to assist the seniors in our community by becoming a Home Meal Delivery (HMD) driver at our Senior Center. HMD drivers deliver meals to our seniors who are unable to get out and about themselves. Volunteers deliver a healthy, nutritious meal, but provide so much more to our seniors…a friendly smile, a social connection, and act as a basic safety check to ensure their safety.
