Did you know that in Athens, 1 in 5 older adults struggle with hunger? Meals on Wheels helps address this issue by providing a nutritious lunch to over 160 adults in Athens-Clarke County. Frozen and shelf stable meals are also delivered to provide food for evenings and weekends.
All meals are delivered by volunteers who are specifically trained in at least one meal route. There are two types of volunteers in the Home Delivered Meals program.
Regular Volunteers typically commit to meal delivery one day per week. Substitute volunteers are those people unable to commit to a specific day but are still interested in helping on an as-needs basis.
Substitute Volunteers are trained in at least one route and deliver when the regular volunteer is otherwise unable to do so. To become a volunteer, individuals must have a valid driver’s license, use their own vehicle for delivery and pass a criminal background check. We ask that all volunteers make a commitment of at least five months.
