Delivering More Than a Meal
Meals on Wheels West
Quick Overview: Meals on Wheels West is looking for a volunteer to make meal deliveries through our "More Than a Meal" program on Mondays and Wednesdays in the following areas: Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey, Pacific Palisades and Malibu. There is hidden hunger in even the most affluent places and we thank you for your interest and compassion in helping the vulnerable populations we serve during these trying times.
Impact: By participating in the Meals on Wheels you can deliver essentials to those who are immobile and in need of social support. Assist with delivering meals to our senior recipients and others confined in their homes.
Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: As a volunteer, you will work directly with Meals on Wheels to decide a route and the safest delivery methods possible. We would love to have volunteers to come in consistently to help make deliveries on Mondays or Wednesdays.
Pickup time from our office in Santa Monica is between 10:45 am - 11:45 am depending on the route. Delivery times can take approximately 1 - 2 hours and each route has an average of 8-12 homebound clients who would otherwise be food insecure.
Requirements: Must be 18 years of age and have valid driver's license & car insurance.
