Volunteer for Meals on Wheels

Volunteers are the driving force behind our mission. Last year, Meals on Wheels had over 1,300 volunteers in the Lehigh Valley who gave more than 137,800 hours of their time and our meal delivery volunteers drove more than 375,000 miles providing meals, groceries, and warm smiles to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities.

Our volunteer programs provide you with flexible ways to get involved in your community.

You can volunteer once a week or once a year as an individual or as part of a group. Yes, we count businesses, families, church groups, and others among our dedicated volunteers! Whatever your time commitment, we are so grateful for your dedication and talent.

Daily Meal Delivery Volunteers

Generally, these volunteers are available on a daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. Delivery volunteers start between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Monday through Friday, and most routes take about 90 minutes. Meal delivery volunteers pick up meals at one of our convenient pick-up sites and then deliver meals to the clients on the route.

Delivery volunteers include various roles:

  • Drivers
  • Visitors (the passenger in the car who takes the food to the client)
  • Substitutes: Fill in on an as-needed basis. You can specify the day(s) on which you are most likely to be available.
  • Snow Squad: Fill in during inclement weather and cover routes that are open due to cancellations by regular delivery volunteers.
