The Meal on Wheels program in Alexandria:

  • Deliver meals to 100 clients per day, Monday through Friday.

Each client receives two meals daily; one is a hot meal, and the other is a sandwich and a snack with milk. Often, contact with the volunteer is the only outside contact the recipient receives. Volunteers are valued and appreciated by the meal recipients.

What do Meals on Wheels volunteers do?

Twice a month for two hours, volunteers complete delivery routes that include 12-14 residences. Volunteers meet at a central location, pick up the meals and load them into their cars, and begin their “delivery run”. The entire process takes about two hours.Volunteers enjoy the feeling of personal service to their community’s seniors. And the seniors are so grateful for the time, energy, and commitment they receive from the volunteers.

A background check and brief training are required.
