“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of others.”
Yorkminster Park Meals on Wheels was founded by volunteers and volunteers continue to be the backbone of the organization. These dedicated people, numbering over 175 active participants, provide a network of care that is so essential to operating a Meals on Wheels program. They are people caring for people – whether acting as Board members, drivers, runners, kitchen packing helpers or volunteer coordinators. Many of the volunteers have been with the organization for over 25 years.
We welcome people of all ages, including students over the age of 15. Our volunteers are a diverse group! One thing they do have in common is that they find volunteering for Meals on Wheels to be a rewarding experience.
Volunteers go out in teams of two to deliver meals. One is the driver and the other is the runner, who delivers the meals to the door. As a volunteer, you can deliver regularly, once a week, once a month, or just be on call.
Our food delivery volunteer hours are Monday to Friday from approximately 10:30am to 12:30pm.
