Café 60
Café 60 Volunteers help year around in our community dining rooms. Not only do they help with meal service and clean-up but they help create a warm welcoming dining room for our participants.

Volunteers can help:
  • Serve meals, clean up, or help with special parties, events, and fundraising
  • Musical entertainers (instrumentalists or vocalists) or other types of entertainment
  • Creating table decorations or place mats (children and groups included)
  • Office assistants or Special Project Helpers
  • the Senior Meals Advisory Committee
For more information, call 541-682-4368, or email.

Meals on Wheels
Volunteer just a few hours a week will enrich your life and the lives of those you visit by delivering a nourishing noon meal and a friendly hello to a home-bound older person; it will fill your day, and theirs, with joy!

Sometimes you may be the only person the Meals on Wheels recipient will see all day.

Ways You Can Assist
  • Deliver 15-20 meals and a brief friendly chat on one morning a week. Takes about 2 hours
  • Use your own vehicle. Mileage reimbursement is available
  • Work in alone or in pairs
  • Work with your children (home schoolers, young mothers)
  • Set up a team at your office. With four team members, you each volunteer just once a month!

For the safety of our vulnerable, home-bound participants, Meals on Wheels delivery volunteers must complete a criminal history check prior to acceptance into the program. The process may take 1-6 weeks to complete.
