“For such a small commitment, you’re making an incredible impact by delivering a meal and a smile to someone in need,” Taylor said. “Our clients not only rely on the food, but the visit also feeds their soul and means so much to them.”

Driver openings are available Monday through Friday, and Meals on Wheels will work with prospective volunteers to find compatible routes that work with their schedule, availability, and location.
