Delivering More Than a Meal
Volunteering to deliver Meals on Wheels is a great way to make a huge impact in a short amount of time.
Most folks volunteer one day a week; some help out every other week, and a few sit on the sidelines, ready to substitute for other volunteers for vacations, illnesses and appointments.
New volunteers are trained by existing volunteers, in ride-alongs where you will learn the route, and be introduced to meal recipients, who are always gracious and grateful.
The Meals on Wheels volunteer day starts between 10:30 am and 11:00 am, with meal pickup at Ossipee Concerned Citizens in downtown Ossipee. Volunteer drivers then deliver meals to the homes on one of two routes in Tamworth, each route has between 16 to 18 stops. You'll finish in Tamworth Village by 12:30 pm or 1:00 pm. and on alternating days that you volunteer, deliver the coolers and hotbags back to Ossipee.
