Join us in serving hope to our community. Our success in delivering meals and more
to homebound individuals in Sarasota depends on the whole community.
Meals on Wheels of Sarasota depends on generous community members, students and corporate partners to package and deliver meals each day. The individual connection that each volunteer has is as nourishing as the food provided. Whether you give your time once a week or once a month, your support is invaluable to fulfilling the Meals on Wheels mission and impacting hundreds of lives each day.
Our service area is northern Sarasota County; from the Gulf of Mexico on the west to the Sarasota County line in the east, north from University Parkway to Albee Farm Road in the south. This area is divided into 48 routes and covers 600 square miles.
Volunteers are needed Monday through Friday to deliver nutritious meals to vulnerable residents in Sarasota County. Meals are delivered during the morning hours and can be picked up at our main office. Delivery only takes 1 to 1½ hours.
You only need a valid driver’s license and proof of auto insurance. We provide the training and will work with your schedule. We require a background check prior to working with us.
