Haywood County Meals on Wheels needs help — there is a shortage of volunteers.
People are needed to deliver hot, nutritious meals to qualifying elderly, homebound and/or disabled adults who cannot prepare their own meals, or do not have someone that can prepare the meals for themselves.
Meals on Wheels has 24 routes with just more than 200 clients. There are two vans that distribute prepared meals each morning to drop off points throughout the county so that the volunteers will not have to leave their respective communities to deliver the meals.
A volunteer for Meals on Wheels should expect to dedicate two hours, one day per week to deliver meals.
