A simple smile or greeting from a Meals on Wheels client will make your day, and arguably, your week! As a volunteer, you provide a meal and a few minutes of conversation to 12 Meals on Wheels clients, who are either homebound, elderly or disabled. Oftentimes, the volunteer is the only individual who connects with the client all day, so you're able to make their day, too!
Our volunteers are drivers or servers. You can choose one of our convenient 25 sites to volunteer out of during the weekday lunch hour, as many times per week or per month as you would like! From Clarence to the city of Buffalo, down to the south towns and southern tier, Meals on Wheels covers a great portion of Erie County, view our list of locations to see where you might like to serve: https://mealsonwheelswny.org/locations.
