Interior Health’s Volunteer Services is looking for volunteer drivers to help with the May Bennett Meal Program, a meal delivery program serving approximately 350 clients throughout the Kelowna and West Kelowna area.

Meals are prepared by staff at the May Bennett Wellness Centre, where volunteers pick up the meals and deliver them to seniors in the community. Some meals are also prepared at Brookhaven Care Centre.

The program runs Monday through Friday. A transportation stipend is offered to help assist with gas/mileage costs.  Deliveries are made in Kelowna five days per week and in West Kelowna three days per week.

For more information about volunteering for the meal program, or other volunteer opportunities within Interior Health, contact Volunteer Services Community Coordinator Brenda Sheppard at 250-980-1558.  For more information about the meal program visit www.okmeals.info.
