Monday through Friday, our volunteers deliver hot, nutritious meals to homebound elders through our Meals on Wheels program. These volunteers can sometimes be the only friendly face a lonely senior will see during the day and are a valuable resource for making sure an older person living alone is OK.
Training takes just 30 to 45 minutes and can be scheduled at your convenience. Assigned routes are convenient to your home or businesses, or you can request a specific route. Volunteering with Meals on Wheels takes just two hours each week. You can share a route with someone, or your school, business or organization can adopt a route to share.
If you can't commit to a fixed schedule, we need "on call” volunteers to fill in for regulars who might be away for a few days or weeks. Volunteers use their own vehicles to pick up the meals at distribution sites, then deliver them between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
- A valid driver's license and an insured vehicle.
- A completed Meals on Wheels volunteer application.
- Two clean coolers to transport the meals.
