THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN VOLUNTEERING!
You can still help deliver more than a meal to those we serve as an on-going meal delivery volunteer. Please consider joining us for meal delivery any Monday through Thursday every week of the year!
You now have the option of two pick-up points for your convenience!
1. Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays from our Meals on Wheels Headquarters at 4306 NW Loop 410, 78229, between 10:00-11:00am.
2. Mondays and Wednesday from our Northeast location at 13420 Nacogdoches, 78217, between 10:45-11:15am.
Or you can become a volunteer with another COVID-conscious opportunity. Please keep reading to learn more about those.
If you can't join us as a volunteer this, please consider giving a donation to help those we serve.
Experience an immediate impact.
Working with Meals on Wheels Families throughout the greater San Antonio region, you are doing much more than meal delivery. You are providing moments of personal connection – a smile, a heartfelt nod, a brief respite from the countless hours alone. We are working hard everyday to meet the needs of the community and continuously adjusting our operations for the safety and health of our clients, volunteers, and staff.
Due to our concern for our clients and volunteers during this worrisome COVID-19 pandemic, some of our volunteer opportunities have changed.
Your generous offers of support and interest in delivering meals to our clients during this time of uncertainty is greatly appreciated! Please take a moment to review all of the opportunities on this page. In addition to your time, 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- our user name for both platforms is @mowsatx. A $5 gift = more than a meal for a neighbor in need.
Meals will be delivered Monday–Thursday.
Most routes will continue to be picked-up from our Meals on Wheels HQ at 4306 NW Loop 410, between 10:00-11:00am. Other routes will be picked up at our Northeast location on Mondays and Wednesdays at 13420 Nacogdoches, 78217, between 10:45-11:15am. If you need to cancel a shift, please contact the Community Engagement Office at 210.735.5115 as soon as possible.
We will not deliver meals on Fridays as we work to minimize interactions for everyone's safety.
The Friendly Visitor Program connects qualified, trained volunteers with isolated, homebound seniors. The goal of the Friendly Visitor Program is to help improve seniors’ physical, emotional, and mental well-being through positive social interaction. Three programs are available within the the Friendly Visitor Program. The Friendly Visitor Program offers in-person home visits, the Friendly Calls Program offers phone or video calls, and the Friendly Fan Mail offers kind words and warm thoughts through letters. Due to COVID-19 in-person visits have been suspended until further notice. Learn more about becoming a Friendly Visitor Volunteer here.
