Come Drive for Us!
We are very proud of the hundreds of caring volunteers that serve as the backbone for Meals on Wheels North Jersey. They use their own cars, fuel and personal time to deliver nutritious meals to our clients throughout northern Bergen County. Our drivers are often the only outside contact some of our clients have each day and they are able to alert us to the additional needs of our clients. Volunteering for a Meals on Wheels program is a fulfilling experience – meeting those you are helping and contributing to your community!
About Delivering Meals
Meals are prepared at two professional kitchen locations in Bergen County. Drivers are assigned to a regular route and to a specific pick-up location near that route. The length of each route varies but we try to keep the total delivery time to within an hour. Each driver is scheduled to deliver meals about once per month. Directions are provided to each client location.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
