Volunteer - Deliver Meals
Delivery volunteers are the heart of Five Cities Meals on Wheels! Our volunteers deliver hot meals five days per week. Our volunteer drivers arrive to work at 8:50 AM. Deliveries are usually done by 11:30 A.M. What really makes the meals so special for our clients are the volunteers who bring not just a meal, but friendly conversation, a hug, and a smile.
You may volunteer one day a week, or as your schedule permits.
Short notice drivers are always needed to fill in when a driver is sick. Short notice drivers may be contacted the night before or the morning of deliveries.
Our volunteer drivers sometimes need time off for short or long term periods. Fill in drivers are usually contacted 48 hours in advance. You can learn just one delivery route or all four routes. Training with an experienced driver will be provided before a new driver is given a route.
Delivery volunteers require a valid drivers license and a car with proof of insurance.
