Why should I volunteer for Meals on Wheels?
Volunteers are our lifeblood. We could not accomplish serving of seniors we serve throughout the year without the help of our devoted volunteers. They deliver meals, support our operations in the offices and at events, and are partners in keeping seniors healthy and independent in their own homes.
We all know what it feels like to be lonely — and to be hungry not just for a meal, but for the nourishment that comes from personal connection. That's where you and Meals on Wheels come in. By becoming a volunteer, you'll prepare or deliver a meal, provide a friendly visit, and offer a safety check to seniors who may not have contact with another person all day. You'll join more than 10 locally and more than two million others nationally — working collectively throughout the U.S. to make sure the seniors who took care of us aren't forgotten, hungry or alone. It doesn't take much from each of us to improve the lives of so many, and there are many more ways to volunteer. Together, we can make a huge difference for seniors.
