Meal delivery volunteers serve a critical role in our program and in the lives of our homebound neighbors. Volunteers choose the day (Monday through Saturday) and frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, substitute) for volunteering. Meals are picked up at the Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels office at 11:30am, and routes typically take 1-2 hours to complete. We continue to need volunteers to help us deliver to approximately 220 of our homebound neighbors each delivery day.

Meal delivery volunteer requirements:

  • Complete the full onboarding process for AAMOW volunteers
  • Volunteer drivers must be 18 years of age; volunteers under age 18 are welcome if accompanied by an approved parent/guardian
  • Provide your own vehicle for delivering
  • Maintain a valid driver's license (if driving) and vehicle insurance
  • Commit to delivering at least ten times over the course of a year (preferably once/month, if possible)
  • Meet AAMOW's vaccine requirements in alignment with University of Michigan Health policies; this includes providing verification of an annual influenza vaccination

All volunteers must complete AAMOW’s full volunteer onboarding process, which consists of the following:

  1. Submit an online application
  2. Log into the volunteer portal and complete the steps outlined in the welcome email
  3. Attest to required statements
  4. Submit required vaccine verifications
  5. Attend a volunteer orientation
  6. Pass required background screenings for Michigan Medicine volunteers

The full onboarding process can typically be completed within 2-3 weeks depending on how quickly applicants are able to address each of the required tasks.

Mission Statement

Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels works to reduce hunger and food insecurity for our homebound adult neighbors in the Ann Arbor area who, because of their health, are unable to shop and prepare nutritious meals for themselves.

Description

Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels is a community-supported program of Michigan Medicine and part of Community Health Services. AAMOW staff and volunteers are committed to supporting the dignity and independence of our homebound community members who are largely unable to leave home because of their health status. We value diversity, equity, and inclusion and seek to provide services that are culturally responsive.

We provide meals to those who, because of their health, are homebound and unable to obtain food or prepare complete meals. We serve people regardless of age or financial status.

Meal delivery volunteers serve a critical role in our program and in the lives of our homebound neighbors. Volunteers choose the day (currently Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) and frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, substitute) for volunteering. Meals are picked up at the Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels office at 11:30am, and routes typically take 1-2 hours to complete.

For many of our clients, a volunteer is the only person they see all day. Visit our website to learn more and apply today!
