Volunteer FAQ

How much time do I need to commit?

The average delivery time is about one hour. Meals are ready to be picked up starting at 10:30 am and no later than 11:15 am from BSA or Northwest Texas Hospitals.

What will I be doing?

Volunteers pick up the meals from either BSA or Northwest Texas Hospital. They drive their own cars and use their own gas to deliver the meals. Most routes have 7-9 stops. Many times, you will be the only person the client may see that day. A friendly smile, hot nutritious meal, and critical safety check five days a week are priceless to the homebound elderly in our community that depend on Meals on Wheels volunteers.

How do I know where to go to deliver meals?

Detailed route sheets with turn by turn directions are provided to each client’s home. Route sheets list the clients name, address, type of meal, and detailed directions.

The ServTracker Mobile Meals app is available for Android and Apple products which provides Google Maps directions to each delivery location.

What kind of training will I receive?

The Meals on Wheels office will set up a training with a volunteer for you to ride along with them on a route. They will show you where to pick up the meals at the hospital, make sure you are comfortable reading the route sheet, or operating the mobile app, ServTracker Mobile Meals and answer any other questions you may have.
