Current volunteer opportunities

COVID-19 Volunteers

We are currently looking for new and past volunteer drivers to help deliver meals to our clients during this critical time. If you are healthy, have a car, under 65 years of age, and can follow our strict health and safety protocols, please consider volunteering. All volunteers will need a current level 3 police record check for volunteer service with the vulnerable sector (less than 12 months).

 


* Please note, Meals on Wheels usually has multiple volunteer opportunities as listed below, however we are currently only recruiting drivers.  

Meals on Wheels volunteer opportunities include:

  • Drivers for our Hot Meal and Frozen Meal programs.
  • Servers for our Hot Meal and Frozen Meal programs.
  • Bike Deliverers as part of our Meals on Two Wheels program.
  • Depot Drivers and Depot Assistants to transport meals to our depot pickup location.
  • Office Volunteers.

Drivers and servers help deliver meals in both our hot meal and frozen meal programs.  Delivery of a route takes approximately 2 hours.  During this short time, our volunteers see the direct impact their help makes in the lives of our clients.

Volunteer drivers with larger vehicles (SUV, minivan or wagon) are also needed for the depot run of four routes out to the west part of our catchment area for pick up by delivery volunteers.

We also have a need for bilingual volunteers to help in the office assisting on the phones and providing administrative support.  Bilingual delivery volunteers are also a great asset so that we can provide the best service to our French speaking clients.

Contact us to inquire about joining our dedicated team of volunteers.
