I can’t get up to answer my door, how will I let the volunteers in to delivery?
We have detailed instructions for the volunteers. You can specify a door that you will leave unlocked and we will direct volunteers to knock and enter that door. They can even help you with opening containers if you require assistance.
What if I am going to be away from home during delivery time?
You may cancel a meal and receive a credit if you call by noon the previous business day or you can leave a cooler by the door and the volunteer will place your meal in the cooler so that it will be available for you when you return.
What if I don’t like one of the meals I receive?
Let the office know what item you do not care for and we will substitute an alternative in the future.
