During the continued pandemic, some MATBUS drivers are being retasked to assist Moorhead Meals on Wheels with their home deliveries. Social distancing recommendations are creating openings in delivery routes, due to increased demand and lower availability of volunteers.
“We’re committed to ensuring our drivers keep getting a paycheck, even if we reduce our bus service,” said Lori Van Beek, Moorhead Transit Manager. “So having them drive for this important community service is a win-win.” MATBUS drivers are employees of First Transit, an outside contractor for driver services.
To sign up for Moorhead Meals on Wheels delivery, call 218.287.0434. They will mail a form that needs to be completed and returned before deliveries can begin. For more information about the Meals on Wheels service, read the Home Delivered Meals section of the Nutrition Services, Inc. website.
