There Are Many Volunteer Opportunities For You

The success of Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County, Indiana depends on the compassionate hearts and willingness to share time and resources from community-service-minded individuals, like you!



Delivery Driver

Personal home delivery is an important part of our service to the recipient. You may be the only friendly face that the recipient sees on your delivery day. The fact that you care is as important as the food you deliver.

Every new driver will be personally trained as appropriate with CDC guidelines and safety concerns related to COVID. When you ride with another driver, you learn about the recipients, their special needs, and have an opportunity to ask questions about your route. Our Volunteer Coordinator schedules all new-driver orientations.

Our primary need is for volunteer delivery drivers. We always need more people to help us deliver meals. If you are interested in becoming a delivery driver, there are a few simple requirements:

  • Live or work in central Indiana
  • A valid drivers license,
  • Vehicle insurance information,
  • A signed confidentiality agreement, and
  • Pass a background check

Adopt-A-Route Program

Corporations and small businesses who encourage their employees to participate in community service projects may be interested in our Adopt-A-Route program.  Employees representing your business will deliver meals for a maximum of two hours on your assigned day.  

Each Adopt-A-Route partner is require to have someone from your business available for a minimum of once a month.  We do our best to schedule meal delivery in a geographic area that is close to your business.

Visiting Volunteers is designed to help clients alleviate isolation and loneliness by providing a friend who can help them stay social and connected to their community. MOWHC volunteers are matched with clients who have identified themselves as someone that would like to have increased interaction with others that may have similar interests. The program encourages the volunteer to meet with their senior at least one time a month and maintain phone contact as well. Interaction might include sharing a common love of baseball or crafts. Maybe going out for ice cream or a movie. The is the increase the client’s contact with others and assist them in getting out of their house to enjoy their community if their mobility allows.
