Summer Substitute Volunteers Needed

Looking for a rewarding volunteer experience this summer? Meals on Wheels Central Texas has immediate openings for substitute volunteers across the Greater Austin area.

Substitute drivers are responsible for delivering meals to our home-bound clients when the regular volunteer driver is unable to take the route. Much like a substitute teacher, the substitute driver does not have a permanent weekly route, but is called as needed.

Our dedicated volunteers deliver nutritious lunchtime meals to home-bound older adults and people with disabilities. Meals are prepared each weekday out of our Central Kitchen in East Austin, then sent to 14 different pick-up sites strategically located throughout the Greater Austin area. Volunteers pick-up the meals from their assigned pickup site between 11:00-11:45 and each delivery route takes one hour or less to complete. You can select your preference of which area you would prefer to deliver to! 

With the kids out of school, it’s a wonderful opportunity to teach children the importance of focusing on the needs of others. Delivering meals with your kids is a win-win for everyone - our clients love to see them, and so do we!
