How you can help
Delivering our nutritious meals to our clients is among the most priceless volunteer jobs at Grandma’s Soup. You get to meet and experience face-to-face the incredible strength and endurance that our clients possess.
We will begin delivering meals in July, 2012. Meals are delivered three days a week. Drivers pick up the meals specified for their delivery route. Each client receives two deliveries a week. A weekly schedule is given to each delivery driver based on their availability. Your delivery schedule can be weekly, every other week, once a month or fill-in when needed. We ask that you block out a 1-3 hour window for your desired delivery schedule.
Meal Prep & Cooking
Everybody loves to be in Grandma’s kitchen. You don’t have to be a chef to help out in the kitchen. Do you have a passion for food, can you cut veggies? Better yet, can you organize meals and label containers. There is more to working in the kitchen than just cooking. We need all hands on deck…Chefs too! We will have two to three volunteers in the kitchen helping to get things ready for prep or delivery. If you have a passion for cooking, or you are super organized, this is the kitchen for you. Bring your passion and enthusiasm and a willingness to dedicate at least 2 hours and join us in Grandma’s kitchen.
