Groceries to Go

Groceries to Go is a program that matches volunteers with clients who can cook for themselves, but who have no reliable or consistent help with grocery shopping.

If the client is able to get around on their own, volunteers help clients prepare a shopping list and provide transportation to and from the grocery store and assist with shopping and putting groceries away. If the client is mobility impaired, volunteers collect the grocery list and payment and do the shopping for them. Clients provide payment for all purchases. Volunteers may also be asked to pick up prescriptions if the pharmacy is near the grocery store.

Volunteer Application

Shopping trips are typically twice a month and are arranged on your schedule! This volunteer opportunity requires time and patience.
