Loaves and Fishes: Meal on Wheels (TWO)


What do I need to participate?

  • A bike capable of pulling a Burley cargo trailer (the trailer hitch attaches to your bike’s rear wheel quick-release)
  • The ability to safely navigate the streets on your bike
  • A helmet
  • If it’s your first time delivering meals for Loaves & Fishes Center via bike or car, you’ll need to fill out a complete registration form on your first day. OHS (Oregon Health Services) requires us to perform a criminal background check to ensure the safety of our seniors.

You may deliver meals using:

  • Your own bicycle and cargo cart
    You will be loaned a safety vest and spare bike lock, if needed.
  • Your own bicycle
    You will be loaned a cargo trailer with hitch attachment, safety vest and spare bike lock, if needed.

Optional Equipment:

  • Safety flag, bike lights, map holder
  • Mobile phone to call the center in case of emergency

When do I deliver?

We’ll work around your schedule. If you can deliver once a week or once or twice a month, we will do our best to accommodate you. If you want to be a substitute rider, let us know and we will contact you when we need your help!

Plan to arrive at your assigned center around 10-10:30 a.m. to get the trailer, coolers and meals.

I want to help, but I’m not sure about riding a bike. How else can I help?

We invite you to consider investing our community by sponsoring one or more bike trailers for the Meals-On-Two-Wheels Program. There are several sponsorship levels from which to choose. Click here for more information.
