The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Meals on Wheels program couldn’t deliver a single meal without the help of our volunteers. We have a small staff but a large corps of dedicated volunteers who lend their time and talent to help us deliver hot meals to seniors, disabled individuals and citizens unable to prepare meals for themselves. If you are already a volunteer, please visit the Current Volunteers page for helpful tips, policies, procedures and instructions.
