Volunteer Introduction and Handbook


Volunteer Opportunities

Everyone has something to give! Meals on Wheels of Denton County aims to build community by engaging people to help each other meet daily essential needs. Neighbors volunteer their time and talent to help seniors live with dignity and independence. Volunteers may be the only contact the seniors have with other people every weekday.


Whether you have only a few hours one day a week or can volunteer every day, your assistance is much needed!

Meals on Wheels Volunteer Role

Deliver nutritious lunches to those in need in Denton County. Volunteers are typically expected to commit to meal delivery by:

  • Volunteering regularly at least one day a week

  • Or volunteering to deliver on a stand-by basis and we will call you when needed to see if you are available

The food pick-up time is between 10:30 A.M. and 11.30 A.M., Monday through Friday, and the food should be delivered to homes by 1 P.M. Food containers and training are provided. Please remember that we, and the people who receive our meals, are depending on you.

Volunteer requirements to deliver meals include:

  • Personal transportation

  • Valid driver’s license and vehicle insurance

  • Application

  • Criminal history check which we conduct
