Pros: freemeals
The days were always fun. Cooking and cleaning were not the most fun of the day however. The most fun times were spent delivering the meals to the elderly and getting to engage in great conversation with each person.

Pros: making others happy
IT WAS REALLY NICE WORKED FOR THEM.
IN A TYPICAL DAY I USED TO DELIVER FOOD FOR ELDERLY PEOPLE EVERY DAY. IT WAS REALLY NICE TO KNOW THAT THEY WERE HAVING THEIR MEALS ON TIME. I FEEL HAPPY WHENEVER THEY STARTED TO SMILE WHEN THEY SAW ME AT THEIR DOOR. IN MY TIME WORKING THERE I LEARNED HOW TO BE PATIENT AND HOW TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE.

A wonderful organization that helps many in need.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INDecember 5, 2013
Pros: helping the community
Cons: gas/mileage on your vehicle
Meals on Wheels is one of the best non-profit organizations to work for. They help an endless amount of people who rely upon them and their volunteers. A typical day consists of obtaining your route and list of clients for the run, picking up the hot and cold meals at your designated hospital cafeteria, and then delivering the meals to each individuals – more... place of residence to drop off and engage in friendly conversation for a few minutes. I usually worked alone, but the hospital staff was always friendly and my supervisor was always accommodating with my shift schedule. The hardest part of the job was not being able to stay longer to chat with the people you delivered meals to. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know these individuals and seeing how much of a difference you were making in their lives by simply interacting and caring about them. – less

Pros: everything they do.
This is a very important program for our communities. For most this will be the only balanced meal they will have all day. So many are lonely and look forward to the visit. The volunteers make sure they are safe and not being abused. I just cannot say enough good things about M.O.W
