How you can get involved
You will experience the satisfaction of knowing you are providing a vital service to the community. You will make new friends, learn new skills, and probably grow in self-esteem and confidence. Remember your involvement is brightening others' lives and making a real difference.
We will usually interview you when you offer your help to explain what you can expect from us and what we expect from you. Because you may be visiting the clients in their homes we require references and police checks (every 3 years).
The typical work of Meals on Wheels field volunteers is the delivery of meals to clients using your own car and you will be reimbursed for petrol and other out of pocket expenses. Other ways you can help include being on the local management committee, lending a hand with general office duties or assisting with new services such as the breakfast and snack program.
Depending on the type of volunteering you are doing, anything from an hour a month to one or more full days a week. The choice is yours.
You will receive an induction with experienced volunteers who have been involved for a while are often happy to share some of their experience and advice.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our service here at Morisset & Toronto Meals on Wheels
