Individual Drivers & Servers
Interested in delivering food & friendship to your homebound neighbors? Volunteers needed Monday through Friday at various locations throughout WNY, including the city of Buffalo. A meal delivery route takes about one hour to complete during the lunch hour. Volunteering is a great opportunity for retirees, students looking to fulfill service hours, shift workers and anyone looking to make a difference. Volunteers can work as little or much as they like - working every day, once a week or even just signing up for our substitute list. Contact Jennifer McMorrow at 822-2002, ext. 21 or by e-mail at JMcMorrow@mealsonwheelswny.org; alternately complete our volunteer form and someone will contact you.
Group Volunteering: "Adopt-A-Route" Program
Our Adopt-A-Route program was developed to expand our volunteer base by tailoring the volunteer committment to fit the needs of volunteers in the workplace. Eight or more employees from an area employer agree to participate in meal delivery (with the employer's blessing), with each employee delivering meals approximately one time a month. Adopt-A-Route is an easy and affordable way for employers and employees to be able to give back to the community.
Special Events Assistant
