Help SCES deliver produce for homebound older adults

Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES) is seeking volunteers to help deliver farm fresh produce to about 100 homebound older adults on Tuesday, July 26.

The produce is being delivered to the SCES offices through the USDA Farmers’ Market Nutrition program. Volunteers with reliable transportation are needed to help with the distribution, which starts at 11:30 and is expected to run 3 or 4 hours.

Interested in taking on a delivery route to help with the distribution?  Contact SCES Volunteer Coordinator Lindsey Smilack at for more information.

All volunteers must have an SCES volunteer application and CORI check on file, as well as proof of COVID-19 vaccination. First-time volunteers are asked to apply online through the form on the Volunteer Opportunities page.
