ORGANIZATION: Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland

  • 26 people are interested

Help your neighbor get the necessary groceries they need to remain aging in place. Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland needs volunteers to help with our Grocery Assistance program in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

Volunteers are matched to a homebound individual and work closely with their client to schedule shopping trips, prepare grocery lists, and help put the groceries away. Volunteers do not take the client to the store, but they have a Meals on Wheels credit card and the client’s shopping list to shop on their behalf.

Each shopping trip averages 1 - 2 hours. The volunteer commitment for this program is at least nine months, and you must be able to submit shopping reports online. If you're interested in this opportunity, please complete a volunteer application to get started: http://mowcm.mowscheduler.com/volunteerapplication

Or e-mail volunteer@mowcm.org or call 443-573-0925 to learn more. You can make a difference in the life of a homebound neighbor!

About Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland


515 South Haven St, Baltimore, MD 21224, US

Mission Statement

To enable people to live independently at home through the provision of nutritious meals, personal contact, and related services.


Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland provides two nutritious meals daily to homebound persons living in Baltimore City and Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford, Montgomery, Pronce George's, and Howard Counties. Volunteers provide friendly and compassionate meal delivery service to our clients. Related services include grocery shopping, pet food, and phone call programs.

What does homebound mean? Our clients are unable to prepare meals or shop for themselves. Most of clients are elderly. Other clients may be disabled, ill or recovering from major medical procedures.

Are there income restrictions on service? No. Anyone who meets the definition of homebound may be eligible for service.

Is meal service free? Some clients do receive free meal service, however most clients pay a small fee. We determine how much our clients pay by assesing all forms of income.

Why do we rely on volunteers? Since it's start in 1960, Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland has been a volunteer supported agency. Volunteers truly provide the heart of our agency. They really care about what they do and support our mission. Without our volunteers, paid staff would deliver over 3,000 meals a day! This would make our services more costly and less personal.
