About Meals on Wheels | Volunteer for Meals on Wheels | Donate to Meals on Wheels


Many people know Meals on Wheels as a food delivery service for the homebound. However, what they don't know is how impactful the moments of contact between the volunteer and the recipient can be. For many seniors, the volunteer who drops off their meal is the only person they will see that day. The delivery isn't just about nourishment, it's about a valuable moment of human connection. And in turn, it's those moments of human connection that make volunteering so rewarding.
