Senior Nutrition Program

The El Dorado County Senior Nutrition Program is currently looking for dedicated, caring volunteers to deliver meals to homebound senior citizens. Each volunteer generally works one day each week to an assigned route, delivering meals between 10:30 a.m. to noon. Orientation sessions for potential new volunteer drivers are scheduled in August 2016.

“If you have a heart for seniors and helping others, we could greatly use your help,” said Ruth Green, Program Coordinator for the Senior Nutrition Program. “Our volunteer drivers often provide the only daily contact some of our recipients receive. A warm, nutritious meal delivered with a smile can brighten any day.” 

Volunteers who cannot provide a weekly commitment can serve as back-up drivers. “Some individuals may choose to share the commitment with a group of friends to alternate driving from week to week. Home school families are also invited to become involved,” said Green. 

Orientation sessions for new volunteer drivers will be held in August as follows:

  • Thursday, August 25, 2016, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, located at 3050 Lake Tahoe Boulevard in South Lake Tahoe.

  • Wednesday, August 31, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Placerville Senior Center, located at 937 Spring Street in Placerville.
