Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches, Inc.

Having fun in the kitchen

Want to make the difference in the lives of seniors in your community? Have a few hours available in the morning? Volunteer to help prepare. plate and pack meals to go out to local homebound seniors.

Five (5) days a week we are in the kitchen plating fresh, hot meals for our homebound seniors. Our kitchen volunteers help from approximately 8:30 to 10:45, either one day a week, or as a substitute. (Many have so much fun in the kitchen they help several days a week)

Plating, scooping, sealing, packing, stacking, and counting are just a few of things you may do in the kitchen.

No special skills are required, however we ask that you are able to lift safely meal bags or boxes of food items which may weight up to 8 lbs, be on your feet for a few hours and be able to keep a certain steady pace on the plating line. (Think Lucy and Ethel)

Note: We serve a vulnerable senior population and therefore all of our volunteers must befully vaccinated prior to engaging in volunteer activities. We thank all of our volunteers for their dedication and commitment to the seniors that we serve!

Call Linda Shaifer at (561) 802-6979 ext 3 for information and we'll get you all set with the Volunteer Application and registered for the next volunteer orientation.

Mission Statement

To nourish and enrich the lives of homebound seniors with compassion and love.

Description

MOWPB’s program is designed to address the needs of America’s most vulnerable senior population, the homebound, by delivering a meal and so much more. Our mission is centered on providing three life essentials: (1) nutritious well-balanced meals, (2) a friendly hello and smile to encourage companionship and ease isolation and (3) a watchful eye on the safety and health of our seniors. Our kitchen volunteers plate freshly cooked meals each morning, Monday through Friday. Our delivery volunteers are bringing a smile along with the meals 3 days a week (our COVID-19 schedule). Our three-part platform ensures homebound seniors have access to adequate nutrition, human connection, and emergency medical attention when necessary. All too often, these essentials are lost when homebound seniors live alone. Volunteers are the wheels beneath our meals and keep our program in motion.
