About

Monday-Friday from 8:00 am until around 12 pm 

 

Meals on Wheels serves homebound seniors, age 60 and over, who live in Jefferson County.  The program offers two types of home-delivered meals – hot meals delivered daily (Monday through Friday) and frozen meals delivered once weekly. Volunteers are needed daily to assist with preparing these meals.

Volunteers will generally be:
-Counting out beverages + sides
- Loading vehicles

-Washing dishes, sweeping floors, and cleaning the kitchen after meal prep is complete

-Assisting with basic tasks around the kitchen

 Volunteers must complete the Volunteer Food Handler Certification before working in the kitchen. It is FREE of charge and only takes a few minutes. If you have any issues this video can be watched at our office at the beginning of your shift.
