Getting the homebound meals ready takes place
8:30 AM-10:30 AM.
During this COVID pandemic we have changed the way we currently serve lunch. Monday-Friday we serve lunch 11:00 AM-1:00 PM and ask that volunteers arrive around 10:30 AM. We are serving to-go style. Our volunteers put the meals in bags in our back room so they are ready to be handed out to those we serve.
From 10:30 AM until 1:00 PM some of our volunteers can come in to help put food in the to-go trays.
There is a lot of prep that goes in to making 600-700 meals daily. We could always use help with things like cutting and bagging bread, desserts, vegetables, etc. You can schedule an hour or two any time
8:00 AM - 1:00 PM when doing the daily food prep.
It takes a couple days to get all the meat cut, or prepped for the following week. If you would be interested in coming in one or two days a week to help with that please let us know.
Some of our volunteer drivers need someone to ride with them. The helper would go with the driver and take the food to each homebound person. You would only need to volunteer a couple of hours.
Volunteer delivery drivers faithfully donate their time and gas to deliver meals to those in the Zanesville city limits that, for a medical reason, cannot get out of their home or make their own meals.
If you are more comfortable helping with stocking, sorting, etc., we can ALWAYS use the extra help!
If you are unable to volunteer here we LOVE to receive homemade baked goods like cupcakes, cookies, etc.
If you are interested in volunteering just a couple hours out of your day please give Candi a call at
