The Fredericton Branch of Meals on Wheels delivers approximately 40,000 meals each year to enhance the independence of seniors, disabled individuals, and those convalescing from surgery, injury, or illness. The organisation needs volunteers for a range of fun positions:
- Meals on Wheels Executive Board: New board members are needed to support the organisation. If you’re interested in administration, fundraising, and public engagement, this is perfect for you.
- Tuesday Seniors Luncheon: Volunteers are needed for the weekly event to help with such tasks as driving, serving, and working in the kitchen.
- Meal Delivery: Help is needed with the delivery of meals in the Fredericton area 7 days/week. Individuals can choose how often they help, ranging from 2-3 times/week, once/week, or 2-3 times/month. Drivers meet on the North Side for 1045 hr and load 10-12 meals into each of their vehicles. Deliveries are completed within approximately one hour. This is a perfect opportunity for those who are new to the area and who are interested in meeting new people as well as becoming familiar with the layout of Fredericton.
- Administration: Helpers are needed one afternoon/week to assist with administrative tasks, including preparing menus.
