The Meals on Wheels Volunteer Program enlists the support of community volunteers who donate one lunch hour weekly to deliver hot meals to eligible seniors near their home or workplace. Generally, volunteers are part of a work or service group who commit as an organization to ‘adopt’ a group of seniors in their area for meal delivery, friendly visits, and to ensure the general safety and well-being of their clients.
Volunteer routes are comprised of 8-10 stops and can be completed within one hour. Meals on Wheels staff accompany volunteers on their first visit to the homes of clients to make introductions and review program delivery policies. Opportunities exist Monday – Friday with meals delivered between 10:30 am – 1:30 pm. No weekends or holidays.
The program’s Volunteer Coordinator provides a 15 minute introduction to the program. Often this takes place as part of a staff meeting or other gathering for a group wishing to participate.
