CRITICAL VOLUNTEER SHORTAGE FOR MEALS ON WHEELS

For the first time in years, there is a severe shortage of volunteers who help deliver Meals On Wheels. The Tri-County Office on Aging program provides more than 450,000 hot, nutritious meals annually in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties to older adults and people with disabilities.

More than 1,600 people volunteer each year to deliver Meals On Wheels. At least 170 more volunteers are currently needed to deliver either daily, weekly or once a month. Training takes less than an hour.

The most critical needs are in the following areas:

Greater Lansing (517 -887-1460) needs more than 100 volunteers with the greatest needs in East Lansing, north and south Lansing.

Rural Ingham County (517-676-2775) needs volunteers in Holt, Mason, Stockbridge, and Webberville.

Clinton County (989-224-3600) needs volunteers in DeWitt, St. Johns, and Eureka.

Eaton County (517-541-2330) needs volunteers in Grand Ledge, Delta Township, Charlotte, Dimondale and Potterville.

According to Bob Parsons, a Meals On Wheels volunteer who coordinates a downtown Lansing route with colleagues from the Michigan Department of Transportation, delivering Meals On Wheels is the ideal volunteer experience. “You can deliver as often as your schedule allows. Most routes can be done on a lunch hour so almost anyone can deliver Meals On Wheels”, said Parsons. He added, “Not only do you help people with a nutritious meal, you also brighten their day with a smile and friendly face.”
