Volunteers Keep Our Wheels Turning

A little time goes a long way. Please help bring food and friendship to our senior neighbors.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are often the only contact our seniors have all day. A warm smile and caring attitude go a long way to brightening a senior’s day. In addition to delivering a hot, nutritious meal, you can be our eyes and ears to alert us of any safety concerns that can affect their well-being.


Deliver meals to homebound seniors at lunchtime, Mondays through Fridays. You can deliver as little or as often as you’re available. A typical route takes approximately an hour to deliver. Pick up your meals at your assigned meal distribution site and then head out for door-to-door deliveries. Volunteer alone or with family or friends. Children are welcome with adult supervision.



Substitutes perform the same activities as regularly scheduled drivers. As a substitute driver, you will most likely have a different route each time you fill in for other drivers.



Help our team with a variety of administrative tasks that benefit our seniors.


Requirements for Drivers and Substitute Drivers

Valid driver’s license
Proof of automobile insurance
