Most of us enjoy the warm feeling we get from knowing that we have made a difference, that we have lifted others in some meaningful way. Volunteering with The Soup Kitchen Meals on Wheels program certainly qualifies as among the most impactful ways to share your time and heart with those in need. Not only do our volunteer drivers supply nutritious meals to homebound elders but they provide comfort and a sense of connection to people in our community who sometimes feel very alone and forgotten.
The Soup Kitchen Meals on Wheels
Why Volunteer with TSK MOW?
How does it work?
Each weekday morning (Monday –Friday, including holidays), The Soup Kitchen delivers meals to roughly 70 people living in Boynton Beach that are homebound due to chronic/terminal illnesses, severe mobility issues or are limited due to the frailty of advanced age. This is carried out through TSK volunteer drivers. As we enter the summer months, we have an increasing need for new volunteers who are willing to help deliver one morning a week, or as importantly, act as an occasional substitute volunteer driver for our regular volunteers who are on vacation. If you have roughly two hours available on any weekday morning, delivering meals to your neighbors in need could be just the rewarding volunteer opportunity you’ve been hoping to find.
The Soup Kitchen Meals on Wheels program delivers meals to individuals who are homebound due to chronic/terminal illness or struggle with mobility issues due to the frailty of advanced age.
Once qualified, TSK MOW clients are eligible to receive two daily home-delivered meals, Monday through Friday. Meals are delivered between 9 AM and 1 PM by a vetted, caring TSK MOW volunteer. Delivery includes a hot meal containing a protein, starch, vegetable, bottled water, bread, dessert or fruit and a ½ sandwich and snack for later in the day.
