About

Summer's coming, and we're getting ready! We are in need of substitute volunteers to help fill in for the upcoming summer months. We have many open volunteer assignments across the Greater Austin area.

Substitute drivers are responsible for delivering meals to our home-bound clients when the regular volunteer driver is unable to take the route. Much like a substitute teacher, the substitute driver does not have a permanent weekly route, but is called as needed.

Our Volunteers deliver nutritious lunchtime meals to home-bound elderly adults and people with disabilities in Austin. Meals are prepared each weekday out of our Central Kitchen then sent out to 14 different pick-up sites all around Austin. Volunteers pick-up between 11:00-11:45 and each delivery route takes one hour or less to deliver. You can select your preference of which area of Austin you would prefer to deliver to!

With the kids out of school, it’s a wonderful opportunity to spend some of their extra time focusing on the needs of others. Sign up to help deliver meals to seniors and home-bound adults who can no longer prepare healthy meals for themselves in your neighborhood. Delivering meals with your kids is a win-win for everyone - our clients love to see them, and so do we!

If you would like to join our family, please sign up online at https://www.mealsonwheelscentraltexas.org/get-involved/meals-on-wheels or email us at volunteer@mealsonwheelsandmore.org
