LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's Meals on Wheels program is looking for volunteer drivers to help deliver meals to the elderly.
The program is looking to fill several vacancies in the western and southwestern parts of the city. Volunteers must have their own transportation.
Councilwoman Attica Scott and Darrell Aniton, the Program Manager of the Metro division that oversees Meals on Wheels, will help raise awareness of the need by delivering meals in the Shively area on Thursday.
"The Meals on Wheels program is vital in helping seniors in our community stay healthy by providing hot, nutritious meals," said Councilwoman Scott. She added that the volunteers also provide companionship to people who are homebound.
Meals on Wheels volunteers pick up meals from a site near their delivery route between 10:00 and 10:30 in the morning. A typical route takes about an hour to deliver. The program provides training and equipment. It has openings for every weekday or even once a week.
