Meals on Wheels Durham volunteers closely work together with staff to enhance the quality of life for older adults and other community members who are homebound and unable to provide proper nutrition for themselves. Through daily meal delivery and regular contact with our caring volunteers, together, we positively impact senior health, independence, and connectivity.

Meals on Wheels Durham offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to make lasting impacts on older adults in the community. You can delivers meals— and smiles—to clients each weekday, help pack and load meals onto delivery vehicles, or even check in on seniors in the comfort of your own home. We have something for everybody!
