Thanksgiving Meal Deliveries 2021 - San Francisco
The Salvation Army Harbor Light

We are sorry, but all shifts are full and registration for this opportunity is currently closed.

For over 60 years, The Salvation Army has delivered Thanksgiving meals to around 4000 homebound seniors and disabled adults.

COVID-19 has impacted everyone, and the elderly and housebound adults in our community have been impacted more than most as they experience even more isolation than usual. The special touch of a fresh holiday meal and a warm greeting from our volunteers will be extra special this Thanksgiving!

COVID-19 Measures:

To ensure the meals can be delivered safely for our volunteers and clients, we have implemented a number of changes as follows:

  • A catering company will prepare and package the meals off-site for safety and expediency (no meal prep by volunteers).

  • Delivery routes will be pre-assigned and emailed to drivers before Thanksgiving

  • Check in and meal pickup on Thanksgiving Day will be drive-up (volunteers will remain in their vehicles) (Note: Deliveries will still be made door-to-door)

  • Masks and social distancing for ALL volunteers

(Full details are in the Volunteer Packet linked in the registration confirmation email.)

We need volunteers for:-

  • Greeters -Greet drivers and make sure their paperwork and routing information is ready for check-in;

  • Check-in - check-in drivers and collect paperwork;

  • Provide Traffic control; and

  • Load-in - load food boxes into vehicles.

  • Make deliveries - drivers must have their own vehicle AND at least one passengerto accompany you on deliveries. (We cannot match drivers with passengers- thanks for understanding!).

Notes for delivery shifts:

  • 20 meal routes (2 food boxes)

  • 40 meal routes - less stops but more deliveries at those stops (4 food boxes)

  • (NOTE: Drivers - please only reserve ONE SPOT PER VEHICLE.

  • If reserving a spot for a 40 Meal Route Shift, please ensure you have space for 4 food boxes. Thank you!)

Thank you for sharing your Thanksgiving morning with us! We cannot do this without you and we appreciate your generosity of time.
