Frequently Asked Questions

Meals on Wheels Volunteers

  • What do Meals on Wheels volunteers do?

    Volunteers deliver hot, noon meals weekdays to homebound people age 60 years and better. Routes of 8-12 deliveries exist in all parts of the city. Volunteers use their own vehicles, pick up their meals in an agency-provided thermal carrier and then deliver them. Volunteers do much more than just deliver meals: they provide security and a moment of companionship for many homebound people who otherwise might not see another human being all day.

  • Who are Meals on Wheels volunteers?

    Drivers come from all walks of life: they are retirees, high school students, business people, stay-at-home parents, and couples, members of church groups, civic groups and corporations. They all share a common desire to contribute to the community and to help make people’s lives easier.

  • How much time does it take?

    It takes around one hour to deliver a route. You can deliver daily, weekly, monthly or ask to be a substitute driver to be called on when needed.

    You must meet the following qualifications:
