HELP DELIVER MORE THAN JUST MEALS

Pledge today to volunteer with your local Meals on Wheels program and join more than two million dedicated volunteers who keep Meals on Wheels rolling all across the country. When you do, you will help deliver nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that help keep millions of seniors nationwide – including those in your community – living independently, in their own homes, where they want to be.

THE ROAD AHEAD

The number of seniors in America continues to rise rapidly, and it will take many more of us to meet their needs. With your help, through the Meals on Wheels Volunteer Drive supported by Subaru, we can do a better job of closing that gap. You can pledge to volunteer with your local Meals on Wheels program in a number of ways.

Click each circle to learn more about local programs’ most needed volunteer services.

  • MEAL DELIVERY

    Perhaps the most popular volunteer job, delivering meals can involve picking up meals prepared at a central location, hand-delivering meals directly to seniors' homes, having a brief conversation, and performing a simple-but-critical safety check to be sure our seniors are safe and sound.

  • FOOD PREPARATION

    Some local programs ask volunteers to help prepare meals, pack them for delivery or help with onsite group meal service.
  • KITCHEN HELP

    Kitchen helpers keep food preparation running smoothly. Some programs also need help shopping, stocking food, setting up, breaking down or serving meals in a dining room on site.
  • SPECIAL SKILLS

    Professional and specialized skills are in high demand at local Meals on Wheels programs. From event-planning and execution to helping with marketing, fundraising, financial planning or management, educating staff or clients about health, wellness and senior services, anything related to computers or the Internet, and so much more, local programs need your skills to keep running at top performance.
  • SPEAKING OUT

    Our seniors need your voice, too, to spread the word about the Meals on Wheels movement, the needs it meets, challenges and changes it takes on, difference it makes, services it provides… and the volunteers it needs. Write letters, send emails, make phone calls, post on social media – there’s room for it all.
  • OFFICE AND CLERICAL

    Phones to answer, forms to file, data to enter, guests to greet (and new ones to process), mailings to prepare – all essential tasks that every local Meals on Wheels program needs done to run on all cylinders.
  • GENERALISTS

    Every local Meals on Wheels program needs generalists under its hood, those energetic souls who are ready, willing and able to do whatever’s needed most…including the unexpected. If you’re a Jack or Jill of all trades, and embrace the unanticipated, this is the place for you!
