Looking for a way to make a difference in your community?

Come join us and deliver meals to home bound seniors. It's the most enjoyable and rewarding experience to hand a freshly prepared meal to a home bound senior who struggles to shop and cook for themselves.

We currently need help in the Lake Worth, West Lake Worth and central West Palm Beach areas. We have several open routes that are available on different weekdays so call us now to get on board!

You can commit to a once a week delivery schedule OR be on stand-by as a sub - your choice.

We are "More than a meal", providing a hug, smile, laugh when needed and being the eyes and ears for family members.

Please call us to get started - (561) 802-6979 x 3. We'll email you the volunteer application, invite you to an orientation, and get you started as a Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches volunteer. No experience or particular skills needed - just a willingness to serve. Delivery volunteers do need a cell phone and the ability to read the directions and instructions on our route sheets.

Minimum age is 18 and all volunteers must pass a criminal background check.

Mission Statement

MOWPB’s program specifically addresses the needs of America’s most vulnerable senior population, the homebound, by delivering more than a meal. Our mission is centered on providing three basic life essentials: (1) nutritious well-balanced meals, (2) companionship, and (3) a watchful eye on the safety and health of our seniors. Our volunteers plate and deliver fresh meals each morning, Monday through Friday. The three-part platform ensures homebound seniors have access to adequate nutrition, human connection, and emergency medical attention. All too often, these are lost when homebound seniors live alone

Description

Volunteers are the wheels beneath our meals and keep our program in motion. With their help, a freshly prepared meal is plated, packaged, and delivered 5 days a week to provide nutrition and peace of mind to local, homebound seniors in need.
