MOJ Volunteer Driver FAQ
What does a meal delivery driver do?
Our drivers begin by meeting at our pickup location. From there, your meals will be organized into insulated delivery bags with a route sheet included. This route sheet has your clients properly arranged in order to make your trip as smooth and time efficient as possible. Once you’ve obtained your delivery goods you will be ready to deliver the meals to the seniors on your route.
What is the time commitment for delivering meals?
Our delivery window is between 10:30am to 1:00pm. On average deliveries take an hour and a half, depending on your route. We give our seniors the 2.5 hour window as a means of flexibility for our drivers.
How often do I have to deliver meals if I become a driver?
There is no minimum or maximum amount of days that we require our drivers to volunteer. We all have busy schedules and you may not always be able to commit to several routes in a given month. If your’e only able to set aside time once or twice a month, that works for us! Every bit of time that your’e able to donate is valued and appreciated!
How do I become a volunteer?
You can complete our online volunteer driver application, or download a PDF copy, fill it out and drop it in at our office, along with a copy of your current driver’s license and insurance card.
Do you perform background checks for your volunteers?
Yes, we are required to run background checks for anyone involved with Meals of Joy in an official capacity. For specific questions or concerns, please
Do you have any volunteer needs outside of delivering meals?
At this time, drivers are our only form of volunteering. Please check for updates for more volunteering opportunities as they arise! You can also send us a message indicating your area(s) of interest and skills.
