happy to help


The heart of the program is the volunteers who unselfishly donate their time. Each week, fifty dedicated individuals, in teams of two, deliver the meals. Using Meals on Wheels vehicles, the volunteers pick up meals at the hospitals in specially designed "hot boxes" and deliver them to the recipients' homes.

They also provide a daily contact with the client, reporting any problems they may encounter. If for any reason the client does not answer the door, a call is made to the office so that the staff can make sure every thing is fine. This is a very important service to the client and his or her family.

Volunteering is a lot of fun and we welcome any one who can spare 2 hours per week, two hours per month, or could simply act as a substitute on occasion. We are willing to coordinate compatible schedules with couples, college students and even other organizations that would like to volunteer their time to help make a difference.

If you would like to volunteer or would like more information, please call Meals on Wheels at (812) 476-6521.

You may also choose to print our Volunteer Application, complete it, then return it to us via mail to Meals on Wheels of Evansville, Inc., 3700 Bellemeade Avenue, Suite 113, Evansville, IN 47714 or bring it to the office in person.
