Description

Meals on Wheels is looking for volunteers to help deliver meals to seniors and adults living with disabilities in our community. The volunteer commitment is flexible and is usually a few times a month depending on your availability. Once you have completed training you can sign up for shifts and view your schedule in our online volunteering portal. Each shift is 2 hours and usually occurs over the lunch period from 11:00am to 1:00pm on Saturday. We also offer weekday volunteering opportunities should this be of interest.
Drivers deliver hot meals to clients at their home, brining the meal to the door and greeting the client. Drivers use their own vehicles to make deliveries to clients at their homes. During this time, volunteers see the direct impact their help makes in the clients’ lives.
