The Community Action Agency of Muskingum County is currently seeking community minded companies and organizations that recognize the value of being involved in helping others in the community. The Franciscan Community Meals-on-Wheels program is one of many programs administered by the Community Action Agency that benefit low to moderate income individuals and families in Zanesville and Muskingum County.
The Franciscan Community Meals-on-Wheels Adopt-a-Route program is an easy and effective way for companies and organizations to get involved in their local communities! With as few as four people, a company or organization can Adopt-a-Route and deliver meals one day a week. Therefore, individual staff members would only deliver once a month, but the company or organization would help seniors, homebound and handicapped individuals every week.
Volunteers are the vital link for the Franciscan Community Meals-on-Wheels program and add an immeasurable human value to the quality of what we do. We believe that those we serve deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Much too often, the volunteer may be the only contact with the customer for that day, the only caring words or smile, or the only safety net to alert us of possible health conditions or additional needs the customer may have.
Companies and organizations can choose a day(s) to deliver meals Monday - Friday, throughout the Zanesville area. Delivery time is typically 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Companies and organization may also volunteer to deliver out of town meals on Monday that are typically delivered between 9:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. Meal delivery volunteers use their own automobile and are required to have a valid driver’s license and proof of auto insurance.
