Volunteers are what make Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois possible.
As a volunteer with us, you can make a big difference in your community by committing just two hours a week. Our volunteers provide nourishment not just for the body but for the soul as well. They also provide wellness checks for our clients who do not have family members to care for them.
Our volunteers use their own vehicles to pick up and deliver prepared meals once a week, every other week, or once a month.
Volunteers in a group can adopt a route and take turns delivering meals in teams of 2 or 3 on a week- to-week basis.
Workplace delivery teams can deliver meals during their lunch hours, giving companies an opportunity to give back.
Though meal delivery is our main volunteer need, we welcome anyone who wants to get involved with us.
Volunteer Central is a place for new and current volunteers to access training materials and forms.
