Volunteer Opportunities with

DELIVERY DRIVER

Our drivers bring meals and social interaction to Oahu seniors and individuals with disabilities so they can remain nourished in the safety of home. Each route usually contains 6-8 stops and takes less than two hours. Drivers must have access to a vehicle, valid driver’s license, and smart phone.

Deliveries typically occur anytime during these times:
Monday-Friday: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

MEAL PACKER

Our meal packers parcel out the meals so they can be easily delivered to individuals with disabilities and seniors. Every packing shift takes place at the Lanakila Pacific facility on Bachelot Street and usually is completed in 2-3 hours.

Packing occurs at these times:

Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday: 8 AM
Wednesday & Thursday: 10 AM

If your group is looking for a volunteer opportunity, Mondays are reserved for work, school, club, and other one-time group opportunities.
