Got wheels, time to burn, a valid driver’s license and a desire to help others? If so, the Meal-A-Day program has a place for you — as a driver to deliver meals served to program recipients in the Como-Pickton area.


“My Friday driver that drives the Como-Pickton Meal-A-Day route is moving. Today will be his last day. I need to find a replacement driver for that route as soon as I can,” said Karon Weatherman, program director.

Drivers have only to show up at the Senior Citizens Center, load the ice chest (or chests) for their route and deliver the boxed meals to the correct addresses. 

 “This route is out in the county, so it is a long route,” Weatherman said, noting that knowledge of the Como-Pickton area or ability to read and follow rural driving directions are important for this route.

Meal-A-Day is a food program run Monday through Friday by volunteers, who cook, package and deliver meals to seniors who are shut-ins and are unable to cook for themselves.

Anyone interested in volunteering can  contact Weatherman at 903-885-1661.
