Summer/Fall Internship Opportunities

Meals on Wheels Durham is a non-profit agency committed to enhancing the quality of life for

eligible homebound adults in our community.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for seniors, peoples with disabilities, and other eligible community members who are unable to provide proper nutrition for themselves by delivering meals, offering personal interactions, and providing other complementary services. Dedicated volunteers deliver lunches to our clients each weekday, with the objective of improving the health of each individual. It is our goal that the combination of nutritious meals and social interaction will help our clients remain independent and allow them to age gracefully in their homes.
