How Can YOU Help?
Drivers and Runners
Drivers pick up meals at a central location and then follow a specific route, making several stops along the way to deliver to Meals on Wheels recipients. Sometimes a driver works with a volunteer “runner,” who takes the meal from the car to the door of a senior's home.
All Meals on Wheels programs have events and fundraisers that require extra help – including planning and organizing, publicity, onsite setup and much more. Ask your local program if there are upcoming events that you can help with.
Meal Preparation and Packaging
At many programs, volunteers assist in the kitchen, preparing meals or packing them for delivery.
Senior Center Aides
Some Meals on Wheels programs provide congregate meals in addition to home delivered meals – serving meals at a central location, where seniors can come to eat together. For Meals on Wheels programs that are housed within senior centers, there are many opportunities available for those interested in helping with activities, meal services and other tasks.
