Meal delivery drivers, meal packers, and bag stampers

Are you seeking a rewarding, enriching volunteer activity? Charlie Misovye, Volunteer Manager for Meals on Wheels Northwest Indiana is welcoming individuals, clubs and corporate teams to volunteer as meal delivery drivers, van route drivers, kitchen helpers, bag stampers.

Misovye said, "The increased number of clients and meals we are serving means Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana urgently needs volunteer meal delivery drivers throughout Lake and Porter Counties." The most urgent need is in Merrillville, Hammond, Highland, Griffith, Hobart, Miller, Munster, and Whiting. Volunteers pick up meals at lunchtime at a meeting spot in their community and deliver to local people in need.

Additionally, volunteer van drivers are immediately needed to deliver food containers to designated locations. All van routes originate at the Merrillville facility.

Kitchen Help needed includes the packing of meals and cold side bags as well as Bag Stampers to code bags. Both activities have two hour shifts available mornings and afternoons Monday through Friday.

Volunteers are the heart of Meals on Wheels. Turn your compassion into action and become part of the Meals on Wheels team of volunteers and make a difference in your community.

Register now for an upcoming volunteer driver and new app training on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at the Merrillville facility located at 8446 Virginia Street, Merrillville IN. Contact Charlie Misovye, Volunteer Manager at 219-756-3663 or . Attendance is limited.

Founded in 1977, Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana delivers 1,700 nutritious meals each day with a wellness check and friendly visit to people in Lake, Porter, Newton, and Jasper counties, with the support of community volunteers.
