Meal A Day is still in need of a driver to deliver meals on the fourth Thursday of each month to program recipients on the Como-Pickton route.

“I have had people call, but only want to take one week a month,” said Karon Weatherman, program director. “Maybe a business would be willing to give up some time each month for some community service?” 

Weatherman said there’s also a need for “potential drivers,” people who can be called on to help out “when a route comes open” in the future. People willing to volunteer a day as needed should a regular Meal A Day drive not be available one day to deliver the meals are always welcome and apreciated.

 Drivers must have a valid driver’s license and reliable vehicle which they show up in at the Senior Citizens Center for their designate route. 

An ice chest (or chests) for their route will be loaded into their vehicle and they simply have to deliver the boxed meals to the correct addresses. 

Driver delivery pairs are also welcome.

“The Como/Pickton 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 donating their time and vehicle to deliver meals the fourth Thursday of each month on a “fill-in” or serve as a regular driver for any potential route should contact Karon Weatherman at the Senior Citizen Center, Martin Luther King Drive or 903-885-1661.
