Each day, 71 volunteers deliver hot meals to over 700 seniors and homebound in the Greater Tampa area. All of the meals are prepared and cooked in the Meals On Wheels of Tampa kitchen, located at 550 W. Hillsborough Ave. Meals On Wheels of Tampa trucks distribute hot food, every morning, to all 16 meal pick-up sites across town. Pick-up sites are designated locations where volunteers go to pick up coolers and hot bags, full of meals, for delivery, Monday through Friday. Pick up times for each site vary, between 9:20AM and 12:00PM. After weekday volunteers deliver their route, empty coolers and hot bags are dropped back off at the designated pick-up site. All routes are approximately 2-3 miles and take about an hour to complete. Routes may contain an average of 8-12 stops. Routes are available for volunteers to drive Monday through Friday, with Saturday opportunities available on the third Saturday of each month.
Please note: SATURDAY’S ONLY- Volunteers are to pick up route sheets and delivery items from the Meals On Wheels of Tampa office (550 W. Hillsborough Ave., Tampa, FL 33603) between 9:30AM-10:30AM ONLY. Do not go to designated pick-up sites on Saturdays. Questions? Please call (813) 238-8410.
Thank you for taking the time to consider delivering to those who can no longer leave their homes and/or have a difficult time cooking. If you have any questions about driving a route or if you would like to ride along with another volunteer to experience a route, please fill out a Volunteer Application.
