Food and Friendship Servers! Have a heart for helping seniors? Providing more than a meal since 1973, Meals on Wheels Kitsap (MOWK) provides nutritionally balanced meals, and social interaction to our community's seniors. We are currently recruiting new volunteers to support re-opening our hot meal services at various sites throughout Kitsap County. To reopen our Silverdale Community Church (formerly Silverdale United Methodist Church) site, we require four additional volunteers to support meal service there Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Community Dining Volunteers work in teams of two or more. They: Receive prepared foods from delivery driver and maintain food temperatures until meals served. Prepare the dining room area for participants by sanitizing, setting tables, making coffee, etc. Greet and check in reserved diners, share information, and set future reservations. Dish up food onto trays in approved portions and serve to participants promptly at 12:00PM Socialize and chat with senior diners. Clean up the dining room and kitchen after meal service ends. Successful volunteers: understand and follow Meals on Wheels Kitsap procedures and policies; respect the host site; provide a welcoming and respectful environment for our meal site diners; and ensure meal service and cleanup is completed by 1:00 PM. As a program volunteer, MOWK Community Dining Volunteers: are required to attend the annual Volunteer Training and any other required trainings/in-service; must maintain a current copy of their Food Worker Card with the office; and provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination.

Meals on Wheels is a private, nonprofit organization providing meals, nutrition, and support services to improve the quality of life for seniors and others with hunger and health needs in Kitsap County. Our vision - with the support of our volunteers, staff, and community - is to create a community of people living well while aging in place with good nutrition, independence, and dignity.
Since 1973, volunteers have been serving and delivering meals to seniors to ensure that no senior in our community goes hungry and much more. In 2021, we provided over 60,000 meals in our community. Be part of the solution by volunteering to serve meals at a Community Dining site, delivering meals to homebound seniors, or calling isolated seniors through our Kitsap Phone Friends Program. We also welcome volunteers and volunteer civic/social groups to support our special events, annual projects, our Birthday Box program, administrative support and more.
