Many volunteer opportunities are available. Preparing and delivering more than three hundred meals on a delivery day would be impossible without the many hands and generous spirit of our volunteers.

Adjacent to the kitchen, volunteers portion and package meals into insulated food carriers that keep the food at a safe temperature during delivery. Every meal is then transported by a volunteer driver and brought to the door of the client by a meal runner.

The wonderful thing about volunteering for Meals on Wheels is that you can set your own schedule. Once a week or twice a month – it’s up to you. Every hour of your time is valuable and is gratefully accepted.

1. Kitchen Line Workers – Help package meals in the MOW kitchen at Grace Lutheran Church.  Hours: 8:00 am to 10:30 am every weekday. 

2. Drivers – Deliver meals to clients on a standard route within the State College School District using your own vehicle. Valid driver’s license and automobile insurance required. Mileage reimbursement is available.  Hours: 10:00 am to approx. noon every weekday. 

3. Visitors (Meal Runners) – Ride with the driver and take meals to the client’s door.  Hours: 10:00 am to approx. noon every weekday. 

4. Food Rescue – Assist with food rescue efforts as needed throughout the year. This job is perfect for someone with a pickup truck or van.
