OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19

Current Needs

Volunteer with us

Join us to deliver meals, safety checks, and friendship to seniors through our Meals on Wheels program. Due to the pandemic, our delivery schedule has shifted from daily deliveries of hot meals to two weeks’ worth of shelf-stable meals delivered every other week. Please see our schedule below for dates and times of our shelf-stable meal deliveries.

Volunteers pick up the food and route sheets at our Central Kitchen (3227 East 5th St.) between 9:00AM – 11:30AM every other Friday. Each meal route consists of a handful of clients who live in close proximity to one another – and we have meal routes all over the Greater Austin area. Be advised, routes are distributed on a first come-first served basis.

Online volunteer training is held, via a Zoom format, on Wednesday mornings, 11:00AM - 11:30AM. Please fill out our interest form and a member from our Volunteer Services team will follow-up with you.

If you’d like to help our older Central Texas neighbors age in place with dignity, or if you have any questions, please call 737-218-4260 or email: volunteer@mealsonwheelscentraltexas.org

GROUP VOLUNTEERING

We are looking for groups of 10 - 20+ volunteers to help us load meals for our Friday delivery days through the end of the year. This is a great volunteer opportunity for teams! Meal deliveries happen 9:00AM - 11:30AM, and volunteers are given a quick training before meal pick-up begins. If your team is interested in learning more, please contact our Volunteer Services department at volunteer@mealsonwheelscentraltexas.org or 737-218-4260.
