The number of seniors in our country will grow exponentially in the coming years. Meals on Wheels is a proven public-private partnership that effectively addresses the challenges of aging by promoting health and improving quality of life for our nation’s most vulnerable seniors. By leveraging the existing Meals on Wheels network, we have the opportunity to not only keep seniors at home, but also save billions in tax dollars by keeping them out of more costly healthcare settings.
Meals On Wheels’ success depends on our volunteer network of those who drive a route and deliver hundreds of meals daily to homebound seniors in Jefferson County. We need your help. See below if you would like to learn how to become a Meals on Wheels Volunteer.
Meal Delivery – Volunteers are needed to deliver hot noontime meals to homebound seniors in various areas of Jefferson County. Meals are delivered between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Administrative Help – Volunteers are needed periodically to assist with general office duties.
