Help deliver more than a meal to seniors and disabled community members in Bexar County. You are providing moments of personal connection – a smile, a heartfelt nod, a brief respite from the countless hours alone.
We are in urgent need of volunteers to deliver meals for our homebound adults and seniors. Please join our Meal Delivery Team from Monday through Thursday to deliver more than a meal!
Weekly Meal Delivery Volunteers deliver meals to homebound adults and seniors on scheduled day(s). Volunteers can pick up their route sheets and meals from the following times and locations:
Monday and Wednesday from 10:30AM - 11:15AM at Heroes Stadium at 4799 Thousand Oaks, San Antonio, TX 78233
Tuesday and Thursday from 10AM - 11AM at Meals on Wheels San Antonio Headquarters at 4306 Northwest Loop 410, San Antonio, TX 78229
Volunteers sign up for routes in their preferred delivery zones through our Volunteer Portal. Routes are first come, first serve. If you need to cancel a shift, please do so on the Volunteer Portal or contact the Community Engagement Department at 210.735.5115 as soon as possible.
**In order to protect our clients, masks must also be worn at all times when in close contact with clients and staff. Volunteers and staff must physical distance during meal pick-up and delivery. If a volunteer is feeling unwell, we ask that you stay home and return once you feel better. **

Must pass the following verification checks:
Criminal Background History

To become a Meal Delivery volunteer:
Volunteer orientations will be given in person during meal pick-up. Route Sheets will not be given prior to meal pick-up due to client confidentiality. Please note that the Meal Delivery is a weekday, lunchtime volunteer opportunity.
I CAN'T VOLUNTEER FOR MEAL DELIVERY, HOW CAN I HELP?
Approximately 4,000 individuals receive 6 meals each week. Each meals costs $5 to produce. It would be greatly appreciated if you are able to make a donation of any size to support our efforts. You can donate online and via Venmo or Cash App (Username: @mowsatx). A $5 gift = more than a meal for a neighbor in need.
If you are not available to volunteer during lunchtime, please check out our other volunteer opportunities that may be a better fit for your schedule.
