Thank you for your interest in being a volunteer!

When you volunteer with Meals on Wheels San Antonio, you are doing much more than delivering a meal! You are providing moments of personal connection and much-needed wellness checks to our seniors. Your support enables our senior neighbors to age independently and safely in the comfort of their own homes.

Meal Delivery volunteers deliver care and nutrition to the thousands of seniors and homebound members of our community every day while also getting to meet their neighbors and create lasting friendships with some of the amazing people they help us serve.

Friendly Visitor volunteers can help those we serve improve their physical, emotional, and mental well-being, by reducing loneliness and social isolation through in-person visits, phone calls, or weekly written mail. 

AniMeals volunteers help those we serve keep their furry companions fed and healthy too! The primary opportunity for volunteers is to deliver supplemental pet food to clients the third weekend of the month. 

For all of these unique experiences, please submit an application by clicking the button below. Please allow approximately 5-10 minutes to complete the application and have your driver's license information ready. 

Want to deliver in your part of town? No worries! Meals on Wheels San Antonio is excited to announce the opening of new meal distribution sites!

Meal delivery sites are open for pick up from 11:00 a.m. to noon, Monday-Friday, and are located across town. Click the button below to find a pickup site near you!
