Volunteer Driver Opportunity's
If your passion is helping, especially helping seniors, please, consider giving an hour (or so) to help deliver meals. The Idaho Falls Senior Center is the local Meals on Wheels Nutrition Program. We deliver approximately 220 meals each day, Monday through Friday. Last year we delivered 6,127 more than in 2017. So far in 2019, we have delivered 854 more than last year. Our vans and ovens are almost at their capacity!!! If you are looking for something to do that rewards your heart, give us a call. You would use your own vehicle, can receive mileage reimbursement, be 18 or older, possess a current driver's license, provide proof of liability insurance and have reliable transportation. Would deliver about a dozen meals in a small area. You would chose your day, or days, you would like to volunteer. Time would be about an hour somewhere between 10:45 am to 12:30 pm. We would love to have local business be involved in serving our community as well. Please, call 208 522-4357 to set up a time to stop by the Center at 535 W 21st Street Idaho Falls ID 83402.

With Governor Little's Social Distancing guidelines and the Health Dept guidelines, the Center will be closed, tentatively, until September 1st, 2020, possibly longer. The Center is working on protocols that will allow us to follow the guidelines and keep our seniors safe. As of Monday, April 6th, 2020, the Senior Center does have "Take Out" meals available for seniors, 60 and over. For those who have eaten lunch at the Center in the recent past are already registered. For those that have not eaten at the center recently, you will need to be registered the first time you call to reserve your meal. We will need your name and birthday. Seniors will need to call between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm the day before to reserve a meal (or Friday if wanting a meal on Monday). When arriving to pick up your meal, pull up by our kitchen dock door / kitchen windows and honk between 12:00 pm and 12:30 pm, or call the Center at 208 522-4357 when you arrive. Someone will bring your meal to you. Please, do not enter the building.
Would you like to help?
We love volunteers! There is always so much to do at the center, and we don't always have enough people to get it all done. So if you can give us some of your time, we would love to have it. Just stop by or give us a call and we will put you to work.
We rent out the center Monday Thru Friday from 5:30 to midnight. Click on the link below to take you to the page to fill out the application. We can fit 200 people in the event center and have tables and chairs available for that many people.
Although we receive funding from several agencies, and apply for grants for specific uses, the truth of the matter is the combined total is far from enough to pay for the programs and services we provide for our community's senior population. We need to raise an additional $40,000, or more, each year from other sources. If you would like to donate to the center please click the 'Donate' button to the right. Thank you for your support!
