EUGENE, Ore. – 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 our locations. Volunteers have an everlasting impact on seniors we serve and help 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. We do so by operating eleven (11) Café 60 dining rooms around Lane County and Meals on Wheels (MOW) to deliver lunches and safety checks for our home-bound older neighbors.

We could use volunteers in the following ways:

  • Portioning meals
  • Packing meals
  • Delivering meals to participants

Number of volunteers needed by site:

Junction City – 3

Creswell – 9

Veneta – 9

Florence – 9

Oakridge – 8

Eugene (various locations) – 40

Coburg – 2

Springfield – 20

Cottage Grove – 3

Interested community members can contact Melisa Andrion, Community Outreach & Volunteer Coordinator, [email protected] or 541-682-1366.

We look forward to continuing to deliver meals to seniors in Lane County!
