County Senior Meals Program seeks volunteers

Nov. 2, 2022 — The Senior Meals Program, a program offered by Senior & Disability Services, a division of the Lane Council of Governments (LCOG), is in dire need of volunteers at all its locations. Volunteers have a lasting impact on seniors the program serves and helps maintain access to nutritious foods.

The Senior Meals Program helps people aged 60 and older maintain their independence by providing food, friendship and safety checks. It does so by operating 11 Café 60 dining rooms around Lane County and Meals on Wheels (MOW) to deliver lunches and safety checks for home-bound older neighbors.

The program could use volunteers for portioning meals, packing meals and delivering meals to participants.

Number of volunteers needed by site:

  • Coburg — 2
  • Cottage Grove — 3
  • Creswell — 9
  • Eugene (various locations) — 40
  • Florence — 9
  • Junction City — 3
  • Oakridge — 8
  • Springfield — 20
  • Veneta — 9
