Becoming A Volunteer

We cannot operate without the loving support of volunteers. With their help, we are able to deliver meals in San Angelo, Carlsbad, Miles, Water Valley, Grape Creek, Wall, and Christoval. 

We have 50 routes to deliver every Monday through Friday. Volunteer driving opportunities include regular, substitute, and emergency. 

Meal preparation and distribution volunteer opportunities are also available. We even have pet routes that can be delivered during any daylight hour, including weekends.

Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization. Volunteers deliver nutritious meals over the lunch hour to the homebound elderly, to individuals with disabilities, to the chronically ill and to the convalescent living in their own homes. Meals For The Elderly volunteers help brighten the day for our senior neighbors by showing concern, having friendly chats, and making sure that all is well. With an office staff of eight and kitchen staff of seven, preparing and delivering meals to approximately 650 hungry homebound seniors five days weekly demands many more hours and hands than we have... hence, our trusted volunteers enter the picture. We are open Monday through Thursday from 8:00am-4:30pm and on Friday from 8:00am-12:30pm.
