Volunteers are the heart and soul of Meals on Wheels People and we depend on more than 400 people every day to help prepare meals and deliver meals to participants. Sign up for a virtual orientation below!
Pick up for meal deliveries is Monday-Friday between 10am and 12pm. Delivery routes take about 1.5 hours to complete.
We have had an unprecedented response to our plea for volunteers and it may be some time before a volunteer task becomes available. Please be patient.
Our highest needs locations for volunteers are:
Outer SE Portland - Cherry Blossom Center (740 SE 106th Ave. Portland, 97216)
Gresham - Ambleside Center (600 NE 8th Ave. Gresham, 97030)

Meals on Wheels People is taking extra steps to ensure its participants and volunteers are doing all that they can to prevent contracting coronavirus. Read more here.
Due to the drastic change in our service delivery model, Meals on Wheels People is incurring costs that are unprecedented. Donations are encouraged to allow us to continue to provide food and wellness checks for homebound seniors. Donations can be made here.
