Volunteers needed to deliver Meals on Wheels

By The Active Age | May 23, 2024

Senior Services, Inc. is experiencing extremely low volunteer numbers in its Meals on Wheels program due to the start of the vacation season. The program delivers approximately 800 lunch-time meals each weekday to homebound, isolated seniors.
According to a news release, the program has experienced numerous open delivery routes each day for several weeks. Having staff members fill those routes leaves them unable to offer seniors other important services.
Current or past volunteers are asked contact the program at (316) 267-0122. For those interested in volunteering for the first time, visit the website at https://seniorservicesofwichita.org/meals-on-wheels/ to fill out an online application.
Since Meals on Wheels delivers to the homes of a vulnerable population, all volunteers must be reference checked and attend a brief orientation prior to their first delivery.
