HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

We deliver over 85,000 meals a year. Our volunteers deliver 5 days a week. By giving their time as well as the use of their vehicles, our volunteers help ease any loneliness or isolation a client may feel. They serve as a critical link between the client and his/her family, loved ones, and neighbors.

DESCRIPTION

We need your help to deliver meals.  Monday through Friday, our volunteers deliver a hot midday meal and a cold supper to elderly and disabled individuals.


ITEMS NEEDED

Our volunteer drivers use their own cars. We require proof of insurance and drivers license.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Student volunteers are always welcome at Meals on Wheels of West LA. Younger students can help with various tasks in our office or be paired with one of our regular drivers or with a parent to help deliver food to our clients. High school and college students who already are licensed drivers are especially appreciated as reinforcements to our regular corps of volunteers. We will be happy to record your community service hours for you and send that information to your school.
