(Placerville, CA) - The El Dorado County Senior Nutrition Program is currently looking for community volunteers to help at its congregate dining sites. There are multiple open volunteer slots. Volunteers generally help one day per week from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
"We are currently looking for friendly people who would love to help us at our congregate meal sites," said Jillien Smith, Program Supervisor with El Dorado County Senior Services. "We need help with things such as greeting seniors, signing them in at our front desk, setting tables, serving meals, and more. Anyone who enjoys volunteering and socializing with seniors is encouraged to apply for one of our volunteer positions. Currently, volunteers are especially needed for the El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park congregate dining sites."
The Senior Nutrition Program provides nutritious lunchtime meals for people aged 60 and older for a suggested donation of $3 per meal at one of several congregate meal sites located throughout El Dorado County. In addition to a healthy meal, the program gives an opportunity for older adults to socialize and connect with others, learn about community resources, local senior activities and more.
