Group Food Delivery

Location: Various routes in King County

Have a book club? What about a running group? Want to get your church involved in service? As a delivery group, you would organize a team of people to deliver meals and groceries on a rotating schedule. Routes generally take 45-60 minutes to complete and on average, volunteers will deliver to 4-7 clients. And we ask for at least a 6 month commitment.

Volunteer delivery drivers are the heart and soul of our food program, delivering thousands of bags of groceries as well as meals each year to our clients. We recommend having at least a group of 5 or more for a rotating schedule.

Requirements: All volunteers must pass a background check, have reliable transportation and complete a training to be eligible. Ages 16-17 need two people on a route. Ages 18+ can drive alone.
