Morris County Nutrition Volunteer Program

The Morris County Nutrition Program has 12 nutrition sites throughout Morris County and serves over 1200 seniors Monday to Friday.
The Nutrition Program needs volunteers to assist in kitchen assistance and delivery of meals to Morris County Seniors.
Volunteers must be 18 or older and available weekdays in the mornings.

There are two types of volunteer opportunities: assistance in the kitchen and help in delivering meals.

Volunteer Kitchen assistants assist with setting up in preparation for delivery, serving meals to congregate seniors, and cleaning up. There is no cooking of meals but portioning and preparing of bags for delivery.

Volunteer Drivers deliver meals to homebound seniors in the local community. Driver must have a valid driver's license and the use of their car.
