Description

PURPOSE OF POSITION:


The Home-Delivered Groceries (“HDG”) program provides weekly, supplemental groceries to low-income seniors and adults with disabilities in San Francisco who have difficulty going out to get groceries due to some physical or cognitive impairment. In addition to providing nutritious food, the program aims to reduce loneliness and provide a simple wellness check to a population that can be isolated or homebound. We do this by partnering with faith- and community-based organizations who use their congregants, staff, and/or volunteers to deliver groceries to participants.


The HDG program is growing and we need help reaching out to all those who are interested. Bilingual fluency in Spanish/English required.


If you enjoy talking to seniors and adults with disabilities and want to do something that improves their health and well-being, join us!
