Amherst H. Wilder Foundation

Community Services for Aging
Wilder's Community Services for Aging operates several community-based programs for older adults and their families.

Help brighten someone’s day with a meal and a smile! Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver noon meals to older adults and people with limited mobility in the Saint Paul area. We have seen an increased demand due to the pandemic and are seeking volunteers to ensure participants get the nutritious meals they need. Friendly visits from Meals on Wheels volunteers mean a great deal to those in need and routes typically take an hour or less.

Your help is needed for a 10:30-11:30am shift Monday-Friday. You can choose the day of the week that works best for a weekly shift or volunteer as your schedule permits. Responsibilities include utilizing your own vehicle to pick up meals from our location and dropping off at participants' homes. You can volunteer solo, with a friend or family member, or with a work or community group. Join us and spread a little warmth!


Current openings:

  • Ongoing weekly drivers on Mondays, Wednesdays, and/or Fridays from 10:30-11:30am
  • On-call volunteers to drive on a substitute basis as needed (flexible schedule)
