Delivery a smile and a meal to home-bound adults in our community

About

Our Program:

Join our Meals On Wheels team as a Volunteer Meal Delivery Driver You will help us deliver roughly 100,000 nutritious meals to our 600 clients each year. Clients of our Meals On Wheels program are home-bound adults and seniors. They recieve a hot nutritious meal from our drivers as well as a wellness check from our drivers. This service allows our clients to remain in their homes and retain their independence.

What you will be doing:

You will be driving a route once per week and delivering meals to the clients on that route. Usually our routes are between 6-12 stops. Our Meals On Wheels program operates 5 days per week between 10AM and 1:30 PM. We ask that volunteers make a 6 month committment and deliver meals once per week. We will train you and send you on a ride-a-long with one of our experienced volunteers to help you get familiar with the program. Our volunteers drive their own vehicles and donate the gasoline used. Many of our volunteers have stayed on for 5+ years because this is such a rewarding and fulfilling opportunitiy.

Join our teams and help deliver hot meals today!
