Interfaith Community Services has openings to deliver meals for Northwest homebound seniors and individuals who are unable to cook for themselves.

ICS provides affordable, nourishing meals each weekday to homebound people in the region. Meals are tailored to special diets, and are prepared by health-care facilities such as Oro Valley Hospital.
One area resident is caring for her father, who has macular degeneration. Through the ICS program, a volunteer delivers meals while his daughter is at work.
“I don’t know what I would do without the services of ICS,” she said. “Not only does Dad receive a hot meal, I know that there is also someone checking in on him while I am away at work.”
