How it works:
Meal pick up is between 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. (But if you are working or need to make arrangements to pick up slightly later, arrangements may possible be made). You will be given your route’s clipboard (includes your delivery list + directions), donated newspapers, your food bags, and then be sent on your way! Once your route is complete, simply pull back into line and hand over your clipboard and empty food bags. You can sign up to drive a regular route (the same route, on the same day, each week) or you can sign-up for the substitute list and called for subbing. The 300 clients are split into roughly 30 routes, so that no one should deliver to more than 8-10 houses. Routes are based on vicinity. The whole process typically takes less than 2 hours.. If interested please contact [email protected]!!
