 Meals on Wheels Volunteers Needed




Some of our senior members of the community are experiencing hunger and social isolation.  Meals on Wheels is a program dedicated to providing seniors with a nutritious meal and a friendly visit. In our community, The Peninsula Agency on Aging manages the Meals on Wheels program for hundreds of our neighbors but there are about 170 seniors on the waiting list. 

To help more of those who need meals and a visit, Meals on Wheels launched the "America, Let's Do Lunch" campaign to recruit the next generation of people to volunteer during their lunch break, delivering meals and smiles. You could volunteer once a week or once a month or even more frequently by picking up the meals, delivering them, and briefly checking in on the seniors.  These meals and visits make a huge difference in the lives of seniors in our community.  

To sign up to volunteer with Meals on Wheels through the Peninsula Agency on Aging or to donate, visit . For additional information on the “America, Let’s Do Lunch” campaign and to see testimonials from volunteers, visit the national Meals on Wheels website.  (Source: 2/19/2020 Newport News Now Newsletter)
