Volunteer Opportunities

Meals on Wheels relies on people just like you to lend your time and talent to help us deliver meals to our recipients. Delivery drivers are what most people think of when they consider volunteering for us, but we have MANY different ways you can become involved with us!

Group Volunteer Opportunities

We welcome business teams and organizations that want to serve together!

  • If you own a business in Terre Haute and would like to encourage volunteering in your employees, consider creating an incentive for them to drive for us during their lunch.
  • We work with several organizations in town that have client programs, and volunteering with us provides them with structure for the program and service learning for their own clients.
  • Groups of college students are always welcome to come work together to complete projects for us as well.
