How delivering meals
feeds me.

“When I first started volunteering for Aiken Senior Life Services, I knew I would be delivering meals, but what I really deliver is joy. I’m often the only person the seniors on my route see all day. The smile on their faces when they greet me at the door is so rewarding, and I often think the interaction is more fulfilling to them than the meal I bring.”  -Arthur W. (Buzz) Rich

Volunteer with Meals On Wheels 

Meals on Wheels has been guided by a single goal since the first known U.S. delivery in 1954 – to support our senior neighbors, and to extend their independence and health as they age. Volunteering with our Meals on Wheels program is an experience that allows you to build unique relationships with local seniors which, in turn, helps meet their social needs while also  providing them with a nutritious meal.

 

Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver meals to local seniors Monday through Friday between 10:30 and 11:30 am in their own vehicles. Deliveries typically take less than an hour, and usually consist of no more than 10 stops. Volunteers use their own coolers when delivering meals, one for hot foods and one for cold, but are provided with them if needed. Route information and directions to recipient's homes are also given to each volunteer when delivering meals. Cat and dog food is delivered when available, as well as a copy of the Aiken Standard for seniors who are interested.
