Volunteer Opportunities

  • Our volunteers are made up of individuals, families, church groups, schools, social service organizations, and businesses.  Each of these partners help us deliver meals directly into the homes of our clients every day.   

    • All deliveries take place between 11:00am and 1:00pm.
    • Meals are prepared at 13 different hospitals and nursing homes around Winnipeg. 
    • Volunteers pick up their route from one of those centers and deliver hot meals to clients living in that neighborhood. 
    • One route consists of about 15-20 meals and takes up to 2 hours to deliver. 
    • Meals are delivered city wide Monday – Friday.  Saturday and Sunday deliveries are limited to the Health Science Centre and Concordia Hospital areas.

    Choose the position that best suits you!

    Volunteer driver: Some volunteers drive alone and deliver the meals. Others prefer to have a server to assist with the deliveries.

    Volunteer server:

    Servers go along with a driver to assist with deliveries.
    Group Team Captain: Team Captains are leaders of a team of volunteers.  They schedule members of their group, church, business etc. to deliver meals on a specific day.  Groups deliver once a week, twice a month or more often if it fits their schedule.  We offer group orientations, individual screening and group training. This is a great chance to recruit your friends or co-workers to volunteer. If there are eight volunteers in the group, a team of two volunteers would only have to volunteer once a week each month.

    Office Volunteer: Office volunteers come in to the office to assist staff with client billing, compiling volunteer information packages and special mailings.

    Board of Directors: The Board of Directors is the legal authority for Meals on Wheels. Directors are responsible and accountable for actions taken by or on behalf of the organization. Each Director is in a position of trust for the community and is responsible for the effective governance of the organization.
