The Meals on Wheels program of Minuteman Senior Services provides a hot lunch to homebound seniors. Meals are delivered 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year, excluding holidays. These meals assist the older adult who is not capable of preparing at least one hot nutritious meal a day. In many cases, Meals on Wheels allows them to live in the dignity and comfort of their own homes. In Arlington, over 120 meals are delivered each day. The need for volunteers to help deliver meals is great. Meals are picked up at a site in Arlington around 11:00 am and delivery takes about one hour.
Many businesses create a Workplace Delivery Teammade up of 4-8 drivers who adopt a route and deliver once a week, so each driver is only out of the office once every two months. For more information on volunteering, or to apply, call , email, or check out our website at Thank you!
