Driving community connections

Meals on Wheels is a vital community service, providing meals to our elderly, disabled or vulnerable people in Knox. We are looking for volunteers to collect the prepared meals from the Civic Centre in Wantirna South, and deliver them to our customer’s homes with a smile and a chat.

The role requires you to have your own car, a current driver’s license and covid-19 vaccination. Each shift is approximately 3 hours and we’d love you to be able to do 2 or 3 days through the week (Monday to Friday) but that is negotiable. Training will be provided.

This volunteer role is perfect for students, retirees, unemployed or people working part-time or casually.

By giving a little of your time, you will bring joy into someone else’s life as well as ensuring they have healthy meals to eat. Many of our volunteers have created life-long friendships and connections with both customers and fellow volunteers.

One of our Meals on Wheels volunteers, Brooklyn is a local university student and says she loves ‘providing nutritious meals to the community. It’s also a wholesome way to spend my day off!’ When asked to summarise her volunteer experience in three words, she replied ‘Fun, rewarding and enlightening’.
