“Meals on Wheels Needs Kitchen Volunteers” on Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings from 8:30–10:30.


See the news below published in the
Coastal & Greenacres Observer:
“Additional current volunteer opportunities with Meals on Wheels of thePalm Beaches include meal delivery to homebound* seniors. For more information contact Stefanie Raifman
at 561-802-6979, ext. 3.”

“Our clients depend on our kitchen volunteers to prepare their meals for delivery,” says Volunteer Coordinator Stefanie Raifman, “They are the first part of a process that ensures homebound seniors remain independent in their home and receive healthy noontime meals.”


With the South Florida season coming to a close and many volunteers returning home for the summer, Meals on Wheels now needs community-minded people to help plate and package nutritious freshly made meals delivered to more about 200 homebound seniors in the area five days a week.
     Kitchen volunteers usually work one day a week, arriving in the West Palm Beach kitchen beginning at 8:30 a.m. and are usually done by 10:30.
     Volunteers are currently needed to work on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. All new volunteers, 18 years old and over, attend an orientation session where they receive an overview of their responsibilities.


*Homebound is defined as “confined to one’s home, especially because of illness.”
