Join our Volunteer team to help Meals on Wheels in King County fight hunger! As a Meals on Wheels Volunteer, you will belong to a team committed to helping homebound seniors maintain their health and independence with nutritious food, personal contact, and caring service.

A volunteer backup driver is needed to deliver meals in Kent on Wednesday mornings, when one of the weekly drivers will be away. Drivers typically arrive at the Center between 8:30 am and 9:30 am, load up the meals, and are done with their route in about 1.5 hours. Training is provided, and mileage is reimbursable while making deliveries. We are looking for someone that is available longer term.

Qualities sought in Meals on Wheels volunteers: Commitment to the well-being of elders, good communication and people skills, reliability, and good cheer.

Requirements: Complete the Meals on Wheels Volunteer Application, consent to a Washington State Patrol background check, the ability to lift 15 pounds, and be age 18 or more.
