Meals on Wheels Rockland

Volunteer

Join the network of hundreds of Rockland County residents who are making a difference in the lives of older adults across Rockland County. By donating your lunch break, you can deliver meals to older adults who are homebound, provide assistance in a Senior Activity Center or assist in the Adult Day Care of Rockland located at the Bobbi Lewis Center. Not available at lunch? Donate your time by preparing and packing the meals early in the morning or help with administrative, outreach and fundraising efforts. All Meals on Wheels programs rely on the support of invaluable volunteers.

Testimonial from Jackie/Driver, Valley Cottage Route:

"I had a friend who did something similar (to this) in the city and I thought it was a nice idea and I had a little extra time. I find it rewarding. I drive once a week to 8 homes, it takes about an hour to an hour and a half a week...it's serving a need and (I enjoy) seeing the people, they seem to really appreciate it."

Meet Steve Hirsch, Homebound Meal Delivery Program Volunteer

Steve came to Meals on Wheels while he was recovering from Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He tells us that he was looking for a way to find purpose during this tough time in his life. Steve says, "you get more out of giving than receiving and Meals on Wheels is the perfect opportunity to give back."

Steve's Story

Volunteer Tara Conklin

When Tara Conklin was looking to volunteer she immediately thought of Meals on Wheels, as her grandmother is a recipient in California. Tara has volunteered for us for two years both in the commissary and as a homebound meal route driver. Tara loves that she can bring her children (ages 3, 6 and 8) with her to deliver meals so that they learn how important it is to volunteer and because she knows the seniors love it! Tara also leads a Girl Scout Daisy troop and worked with her scouts to create Valentine's Day cards for the homebound meal participants on her route.
