That’s not a problem. Many of our volunteers come just one day per month. We also have many group from an office or church sign up to rotate a monthly schedule. The pick-up and delivery process take approximately 20 to 40 minutes and occurs between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
 
What do Meals on Wheels volunteers do?
Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver hot meals to senior between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Monday through Friday. We do not deliver on the weekends. Volunteers pick-up the meals in thermal bags and coolers at our office located at 620 Boston St. Suite 12, La Porte, IN. From there they make the deliveries. Each route comes with complete, turn by turn directions to each stop. When the deliveries are complete the volunteer returns the thermal bags and coolers to the office.
