You would be needed Thursdays, 8am – 11am, at the MOW office located at the Federal Way Community Center. We are looking for someone that is available long term.

“Thank you for this service. I just received my first order today. Excellent service from the coordinators and the volunteer delivery folks…. I’m recovering from surgery, and it was difficult for me to fix something to eat. Thank you, Meals on Wheels. You made life so much easier for me.”
