See the impact of our work by delivering meals directly to our clients. 

You'll receive our client's delivery bags and route sheets containing instructions. For our clients, you are the highlight of their day. Delivering is an excellent mix of task completion and sentiments. 

Delivery is every Tuesday and Friday, with a three-hour delivery window: 12:30-3:30 pm and 3-6 pm.

Pick up bulk meals at the kitchen at Home Avenue and deliver them to our drop-off sites in North County between 1-4 pm. This requires a large vehicle. (Suv, Truck, Van).


Preparing and plating the meals for our clients. Wash your hands, wear a hairnet, and scoop a part of a meal. The focus will be to work with other volunteers to complete our clients' meals.
