Meals on Wheels in urgent need of volunteers
Thursday, November 19, 2020 by Tai Moses
Meals on Wheels Central Texas urgently needs new volunteers to help deliver meals to homebound seniors. During the pandemic, Meals on Wheels has modified its schedule so it delivers two weeks’ worth of meals every other Friday. The agency is preparing to resume regular daily meal deliveries in January and has dozens of open meal routes across the city – but not enough drivers to fill the slots. If you’re interested in becoming a Meals on Wheels volunteer, fill out this interest form. A staff member will reach out to schedule an online volunteer orientation, which is held via Zoom on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, 11-11:30 a.m. Adam Hauser, president and CEO of MOWCTX, told Fox 7 last year that without volunteers, the agency “would be unable to provide nutritious meals to the thousands of homebound older adults we serve in Central Texas. We encourage folks to consider donating some of their time to deliver hot lunches, warm smiles and valuable safety checks to our neighbors in need.”
