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 place of residence to drop off and engage in friendly – more... 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

Meals on wheels is an opportunity for me to assist those who are less fortunate. Providing food for someone who can't provide for themselves give me a great feeling

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

I would Work Here Again
Volunteer assisant (Former Employee), Daytona Beach, FLMay 26, 2013
This was also a volunteer job that i did over spring break during my senior year of high school and I must say that i would work there again. Your setting up lunches for residents in the near by apartments and when your done giving meals to the assigned resident, you then feed the residents in the dining hall of the apartment complex.

They would in an assembly line type matter, one person does the meat, another, the sides, another the vegetables, another the drinks, and so on. There wasnt really a hard part to this job but the most enjoyable part is just helping and feeding others that couldnt feed themselves.
