Meals on Wheels by any other name
Meals on Wheels is the most recognized name brand of senior nutrition programs. But other senior meal programs by various names are in many communities in the U.S. and around the world and often go by names other than Meals on Wheels (a generic term generally reserved for home delivered meal programs). While Meals on Wheels programs are delivered to the home, seniors may also find congregate mealprograms at local senior centers, churches, or community centers.
Many communities have bothMeals on Wheels and congregate senior meal programs through senior centers available to local residents. You should always contact your local meal program directly to find out what services are offered. Search meal program locations to find one near you.If you don’t find one exactly in your area, search nearby towns. If you still don’t find one, contact us and we will attempt to find one for you.
Whether it’s a “Meals-on-Wheels” program, a senior nutrition program, a public senior meal program or a private meal program, all are important and contribute to senior nutrition and health. MealCall helps seniors and family members connect with local programs.
MealCall also helps find volunteers for Meals-on-Wheels delivery, meal preparation, fundraising, administrative support, and helps public and private senior meal programs in their community outreach raise awareness of senior meal programs in the community.
Volunteer opportunities are built around what you do and what you need. Whether you are an individual who is looking for a volunteer opportunity, a school or youth group that would like to work together, or a business that is looking to build or add to an already existing employee volunteer program, local Senior Meals locations need your help.
Meals-On-Wheels and other senior meal delivery or non-profit congregate meal programs provide meals to millions of seniors throughout the United States. Through such programs, seniors who could not or would not otherwise eat properly are provided with services that help them live a healthy and enjoyable life.
Volunteers are necessary to any local non-profit senior meal program and you don’t have to be a good cook or have a lot of time in order to volunteer. Program volunteers do more than drive from door to door. Volunteers are needed to help prepare and package dinners to be delivered, organize schedules, make phone calls, load delivery vehicles, and deliver meals.
Congregate meal sites need volunteers to plan, cook, drive vans, help serve seniors, clean up, and more.
Perhaps as important as getting meals to seniors is your smiling face and some words of kindness and friendship. Many seniors are lonely and those that assist in meal programs are their only daily contact with other people. Man
