Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland is looking for volunteers to deliver meals to homebound individuals in their community! Delivering meals to homebound neighbors ensures that our clients can remain aging in place. We are looking for volunteers to deliver meals to the residents of Columbia and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Volunteers pick up meals at the Florence Bain Senior Center and deliver to apartment buildings and private residences in the local neighborhoods. We deliver Monday through Friday, starting at 10:30 am and routes typically take an hour and a half to complete. Volunteers can help as much as every week or volunteer as they are available as a substitute delivery driver.
If you're interested in this opportunity, please complete a volunteer application to get started:
Or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.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
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.
