Volunteering for Meals on Wheels

Volunteers from across the community make a difference every day delivering meals on over 35 different routes.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life: some are seniors themselves, others are business people who deliver on their lunch hour, many of our volunteers take their children or grandchildren along. Not only are they delivering a hot meal, but they are also providing an invaluable connection to the greater community that so many of our homebound neighbors need.

If you have approximately 90 minutes to give once a week, once a month, a couple of times a month, or even a couple of times a year, we have an opportunity for you to give back and get involved.

Volunteering is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!

1 – Look at the available opportunities.

Our primary volunteer opportunity is meal delivery. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday, late morning.

If you are not available during our typical delivery times, consider one of the a la Carte Opportunities. These are occasional, sometimes seasonal, ways to serve; usually ‘one and done’. Either way, the next step is – – –

2 – Volunteer Application

Fill out an application online. This simple application triggers the process. A Volunteer Coordinator will follow up to determine a best fit and schedule for you to deliver; or if a la Carte is the way to go, this application will ensure you are notified of upcoming opportunities.

However, to protect both you and the vulnerable population we serve, we ask that you follow our procedures for safe meal delivery and social safety, including appropriate physical distancing.
