Message from Meals on Wheels

We truly appreciate the community interest in volunteering during this pandemic. At this time, we are not in need of volunteers for the short-term but please continue to check our website for updates. If you are available to volunteer for at least a year, please see our current volunteer opportunities below. 

Our other needs right now include monetary donations and in-kind donations of hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, and new grocery size paper bags (handles preferred).  Donations can be sent to Sound Generations Meals on Wheels, 2208 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA 98121.  Thank you again for your interest in supporting the work we do!

Current Meals on Wheels Volunteer Opportunities


A volunteer is needed to deliver meals in Northshore on Thursday mornings, as needed. Drivers typically arrive at the Center at 9:00 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.

We have several other programs here at Sound Generations that need volunteers.  You can find information here.

Other Ways To Support Meals on Wheels

You can get involved in more ways than one. Leverage your network by fundraising online for Sound Generations! We have a free fundraising toolkit to get your started on your fundraising journey.

Make Cards for Meals on Wheels Recipients

A hand-made card from a caring person can really brighten an older adult’s day. Whether you’re looking for something to do on a rainy day or planning an activity for your youth group or office, all you need is your creativity, some paper, and any other art supplies you have. Remember to make your cards general enough, so they will suit any recipient. You can write messages like, “Have a good day”, “Happy spring or fall”, and/or include an inspirational quote or silly joke. You could also share something about yourself, like where you are from.

  • Please no glitter or “get well” messages.
  • Envelopes are not necessary. If included, please do not seal them.
  • Please mail cards to our main downtown office: Sound Generations Meals On Wheels, 2208 2nd Ave Ste 100, Seattle, WA 98121.

“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.”
