Volunteer

Our volunteers are the wheels on the Meals on Wheels machine. Without their generous giving of time and love, we could not hand-deliver hundreds of fresh, healthy meals to the Hancock County, Indiana, community each month. Community is the lifeblood of our organization, and we encourage you to learn more here about how you can give back through volunteerism.
