Additional Information:

Meals on Wheels is our flagship program. Volunteers deliver nutritious lunchtime meals to homebound older adults and people with disabilities in Austin. Meals are prepared each weekday out of our Central Kitchen then sent out to 14 different pickup sites all around Austin. Volunteers pick-up between 11:00-11:45, the usual time commitment is one lunch hour per week or you can sign up as a substitute driver. New volunteers need to attend an in-person training session, which are held every Thursday at 12:15 pm.

We also have a variety of different volunteer opportunities that provide our client with: minor and major home repairs; grocery shopping assistance; a monthly supply of shelf-stable groceries; extra, daily, shelf-stable meals for the nutritionally at-risk; veteran services; Alzheimer's respite care; and pet food and pet health care for our clients' dogs and cats.
