BECOME A VOLUNTEER

When you are a Meals on Wheels volunteer, you are delivering much more than a nutritious meal - you are delivering wellness checks and caring contact. For many of our homebound seniors, you will be the only person they see or talk to all day.  

A typical volunteer shift takes about an hour to complete. Your time as a volunteer with Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa will have a profound impact on many lives, including your own. And that feels good. Because when you do good, you feel good.
