More Volunteer Opportunities

Meal delivery is our primary volunteer need, but we also offer other ways to get involved.

Friendly Visits
Spend time weekly or monthly visiting or talking on the phone with one of our clients. This is a great opportunity to provide comfort to our clients who might not have anyone in their life.

Shopping Assistance
Go grocery shopping with or behalf of one of our clients.

Office Assistant
Support our office once a week by providing phone support for clients and volunteer delivery drivers. You’ll also have the chance to work on special projects.

Community Event Assistant
Represent Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois at various events in the community.

One-time Volunteers
We can accommodate groups for one-time volunteer events.
