Meals on Wheels provides volunteer opportunities in three different areas of need to home-bound clients.  We offer services to a diverse community and strive to show that diversity in our staff and volunteers.

Meal Delivery Volunteers: Regular and Substitute Drivers

Over 250 volunteer drivers devote their time and resources to delivering meals to our clients. In 2016, our volunteers drove over 76,000 miles to deliver meals and provide wellness checks for one of our community’s most vulnerable populations. Our drivers have been known to do much more than deliver a meal and check on the welfare of those they serve; they often get the mail, take out trash, do small repairs, go to the store, shovel snow, rake leaves, deliver frozen meals, go to birthday parties and more. Clearly, the extra efforts that our volunteers take on shows they are here to serve because they love to help others.

The extra care and attention our volunteers give to our clients has saved the lives of many over the years.

We are currently recruiting for regular and substitute drivers
