The Area Agency on Aging Home Delivered Meal program is in need of community volunteers to deliver meals Monday through Friday, over the lunch hour, to home-bound older adults in Johnson County.
Volunteers can select six different pick-up locations - De Soto, Gardner, Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park and Spring Hill. Volunteers are needed short term (summer) or long term (ongoing), and must be at least 18 years old and drive their personal vehicle.
Safety is a top priority for the Area Agency on Aging. Volunteers will be provided cloth masks, disposable gloves, alcohol wipes and a trash bag to dispose of their personal protective equipment after their route.
To get started, we ask all new volunteers to attend a volunteer orientation session. Volunteer orientations are being held in person at our Olathe office. Due to physical distancing practices, each orientation has a limited number of participants.
