Nonna's Cucina services are made possible by 130 valuable volunteers who freely give their time, knowledge, skills and dedication to prepare, cook and deliver meals to over 300 clients each weekday at lunch time. Volunteers serve as kitchen assistants, drivers, driver assistants and gardeners, with most offering their services on a weekly basis. Drivers use their own cars to deliver meals to clients between 11.00am and 1:30pm. Volunteers receive a petrol allowance for using their own vehicle. Driver assistants accompany drivers to deliver meals into the homes of service users between 11.00am and 1:30pm. For safety and security reasons, both the assistant and the driver deliver the meal to the service users door. Volunteering for Nonna's Cucina doesn't require a big commitment. Just a few hours once a week or fortnight will be greatly appreciated! So if you can help in any way, please call us on 8240 3491 or complete the volunteer enquiry form online. You will be contacted and a time will be made for an induction session with one of our friendly staff.
Drivers must have their own comprehensive insurance. Must have a police clearance (Nonna's Cucina can do this inhouse if needed) also Vaccinated.
Nonna's Cucina provides more than just a meal service; Our volunteers connect with the service users and provide assistance when needed. In fact, volunteers have a duty of care to report any changes or problems with the client and arrange help if needed by calling the office, the Police or the South Australian Ambulance Service. These outreach links are an essential part of our service and one we are pleased to offer.
