Agency Description: Haywood County Meals on Wheels (MOW) is a program of Haywood County Health & Human Services Agency.  The program provides nutritious meals to elderly, homebound and disabled residents who are unable to prepare meals for themselves.

Training: Volunteers will receive training via MOW Staff.  All interested volunteers are to sign up here:  Volunteer Sign Up Form

Time Commitment: Delivery time is approximately two hours, usually from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Most volunteers have a regular delivery day and route. Substitute drivers may work various days to fill-in for regular drivers.

Skills, Experience, and Special Requirements: A Meals on Wheels volunteer should have an interest in helping the elderly and be able to empathize with the medical and social conditions of their clients. Meals on Wheels provides not only a nutritious meal but also personal connection that many recipients lack and need. The volunteer may be the only person the recipient sees all day long, so a caring, positive attitude is essential. In case of an emergency, volunteers are trained to immediately call 911 and then the Program Supervisor.

Volunteer Involvement: Volunteers will deliver nutritious meals to the elderly, homebound and disabled on a regular or substitute basis.
