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.

  1. Meal Delivery Drivers/Substitutes
    Over 250 volunteer drivers devote time and resources to delivering meals to our clients. In 2014, 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 the trash, do repairs, go to the store, scoop snow, rake leaves, deliver frozen meals, go to birthday parties and more. It is clear through all their extra efforts that our volunteers 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.
