MEALS ON WHEELS VOLUNTEER
Be a Meals On Wheels Volunteer Driver
Approximately 300 volunteers are needed to deliver 5,020 meals each week in Orange County! The need for volunteers is growing every day, as more seniors turn to Meals On Wheels to help them remain independent and in their own homes. Most of our volunteers deliver meals one day a week, with routes that will take no longer than two hours to complete. Volunteer with your children or grandchildren! Meals On Wheels is a wonderful way to help teach responsibility and the importance of community service.
Create a Delivery Team
“Adopt-A-Route” is a simple way for corporations, church groups, social and service clubs to give back to the community. Seniors First will work with your company or organization to create a tailored meal route that will support our seniors and promote team building. Those who “Adopt-A-Route” will take on the delivery requirements of one route, one day a week (Mon-Fri) by providing a team of two for no more than two hours (between 9am and noon).
