How to volunteer
Our volunteers are the heart and energy of our mission, and provide time and transportation to help the people in our community. As a volunteer, you can help us deliver meals, make home visits, prepare meals and provide a friendly connection to our clients.

What to expect
A typical volunteer dedicates approximately 1.5 hours, one day each week, and we have several volunteer activity opportunities. If you are delivering meals, we will work with you to make sure your route and timeline align with your availability as closely as possible. Volunteers are divided by days of the week and delivery routes, and receive detailed instructions to help them complete their assignments.
Your support is critical
Meals on Wheels of Lee’s Summit is a completely volunteer-run 501c3 organization. Every week day we can provide meals to our community solely through the efforts of more than 70 dedicated individuals.
Join our team to help us provide hot, nutritious meals to Lee’s Summit’s elderly, disabled and isolated.
