Meals on Wheels Rockland

Immediate Need: Additional Volunteers for Meal Delivery

Our volunteers are a critical part of our operation. The most common volunteer job is delivering meals and friendly greetings to homebound seniors. Most typically, this involves picking up meals at a central location and delivering them along a pre-determined route directly to the homes of several seniors in Rockland County. During the last few days we have had several volunteers throughout the county cancel. We could really use your help.

Groceries Along With Your Meals

We collaborated with Rockland County Office for the Aging to deliver grocery items to our seniors at home. Bread, milk, eggs, toilet paper. Small amounts to help them get through the pandemic.

Where To Pick Up Your Groceries

When entering the parking lot stop at the Senior Activity Center entrance in the front of the building (the door just past the main entrance to Meals On Wheels). Inform the grocery coordinators your route number. A coordinator will bring the bags of groceries right to your vehicle. Once all groceries are loaded in your vehicle, proceed around to the back to pick up your meals.

Please note: Not all on your route will receive the groceries. You will be provided a list of those on your route who are eligible. If a client does not receive and wish to receive, please instruct them to call Meals On Wheels 845-624-6325
