Volunteering at Meals on
Wheels of Greater St. Louis can be a very rewarding personal experience.
Volunteer drivers do more than deliver a hot, nutritious meal...they
also provide a valuable confirmation that our recipients are safe
that day. And our smile and friendly greeting can also mean a lot
to those who live alone.
The greatest need in all area programs is for regular
and substitute drivers. Our driver volunteers do not receive any
direct reimbursement for the use of their personal autos, but all
miles driven in connection with their volunteer service are entirely
tax-deductible on their personal tax returns. Volunteers are also
needed to serve as day chairpersons, meal packers, interviewers,
and bookkeepers. We are required to do a background check for all
If you are interested in helping to carry out the

and your zipcode. You will be called back by someone in your local
area program that can discuss volunteer options with you.
