Help  deliver food to homebound adults

Homebound seniors and disabled adults can be particularly vulnerable to hunger due to health and mobility issues. For those unable to visit our Pantry themselves, we collaborate with Oak Park Township and Thresholds and other referral partners to deliver groceries to these neighbors in Oak Park, River Forest and Chicago's Austin neighborhood.

Every month, participants receive approximately 55 pounds of food, including eggs, meat, fresh produce, and a variety of grocery items tailored to their specific dietary needs. Participants are called each month to select their own groceries, which are then delivered to their home by volunteers.

Home Delivery needs usually take place during the first and second week of every month - morning and daytime hours. (These dates can change depending on logistical needs).

Before beginning Volunteers need to register and attend an orientation. New Volunteer Sign UP: https://www.gobeyondhunger.org/volunteer
