Join the network of 2 million volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of seniors across the country. By donating your lunch break, you can help the Meals on Wheels program in your community to reach the 1 in 6 seniors who might not know where their next meal is coming from.

VOLUNTEER BY DONATING YOUR LUNCH BREAK

MEALS ON WHEELS PROGRAMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY RELY ON VOLUNTEERS TO DELIVER NUTRITIOUS MEALS TO SENIORS WHO CAN NO LONGER GET OUT OR COOK FOR THEMSELVES, TYPICALLY AROUND THE LUNCH HOUR.

YOU JUST MIGHT BE THE ONLY PERSON THEY SEE THAT DAY.
