Meals on Wheels program needs volunteer drivers

Do you have a few hours a week to give of your time? If so, your local Meals on Wheels program could use your help. Citrus County’s Meals on Wheels Program shares the National Meals on Wheels Association of America’s goal that “no senior goes hungry.”

To ensure that they can provide meals for homebound seniors here in Citrus County, they need volunteer drivers.

Citrus County Senior Services is seeking volunteers to deliver meals to seniors throughout Citrus County around the lunchtime hours, Monday through Friday. They ask that volunteers be willing to give at least two hours of their time, one day a week, to deliver meals to seniors. Each meal route consists of 10-20 stops, taking one to two hours to complete. Volunteers can even be reimbursed for mileage.

Over the past few years, the program has added many new clients; there is a need for drivers at all meal delivery locations throughout Citrus County. For more information, or to become a volunteer driver, please call:
