Deliver meals and spend a few minutes providing a safety check to clients in the Meals on Wheels program.
Hot Meals: delivered throughout the county. Meals consist of a soup, entrée and dessert, and are delivered 2 to 3 times per week by volunteers. Each town has different pick-up locations and procedures to follow. If you are volunteering for this program you will job shadow with an experienced volunteer. Volunteers are encouraged to visit for a few minutes as a safety check and to inform the Program Coordinator of any health status changes.
Frozen Meal Program: Meals are ordered and delivered every 2 weeks throughout Lambton County. Orders may consist of soups, entrées, and desserts. There are currently three delivery routes for the Frozen Meal Program: a North, Central, and South Route throughout the county. Volunteers are able to use one of the minivans from Lambton Elderly Outreach to deliver these meals. Meals are prepared by Piquettes Frozen Meals and are picked up at the store by the North Lambton delivery volunteers and brought back to the office for distribution. Thermal bags are used to keep the meals cold during the delivery. Volunteers are encouraged to visit for a few minutes to provide a safety check and note any health status changes.
