At Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association/Meals on Wheels, our volunteers are a critical part of our operation. The most common volunteer job is delivering meals and friendly greetings to home-bound seniors. Most typically, this involves picking up meals at a central location and delivering them along a pre-determined route in communities throughout northern Illinois, including Cook, Kane, Kendall, and Grundy counties.

 Volunteers needed for Short Term Deliveries

The COVID-19 outbreak has created an immediate, short-term need to get more meals out to more seniors in your area. Delivery generally takes about 90 minutes to 2 hours, including pick-up and drop off of food bags at a central location. We could really use your help.

Volunteers needed for a call-in program to our seniors

Our deepest thanks to everyone who has volunteered to place check-In calls to the seniors we serve. Your generosity is a ray of sunshine in these uncertain days.

Due to the tremendous response, we are currently not accepting additional volunteers to place calls to seniors. However, we are still in great need of volunteer drivers to deliver meals to seniors in your community.
