Our volunteers are essential to the advancement of the Meals on Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth mission. We recognize and reward their ongoing dedication and unwavering commitment to the success of our meal delivery operations, fundraising events and general administrative support. Here are a few perks of being a volunteer!
At the end of every year our staff and BOD host an appreciation dinner recognizing and rewarding our amazing volunteers. We also award one person as our Volunteer of the Year for the most hours spent providing client services.
Every Spring we dedicate a full week to recognize the hard work and commitment of our volunteers. We host fun, team oriented activities and events where our volunteers can get to know each other and we can express our deep appreciation for their community service.
Volunteerism gives you the opportunity to demonstrate leadership, compassion, creativity and depth as well as making a lasting, positive impact in your community. Colleges, future employers and professional associations seek out this specific type of experience as part of their application and selection process.

We are now accepting applications for volunteer drivers with the availability to drive on a weekly basis in the Lewes and Rehoboth areas. Our roster includes both permanent and substitute drivers. Our permanent drivers commit to the same route on the same day of every week. We currently have permanent routes available if you’re able to commit to driving a specific route every week. Our substitute drivers provide availability for 2 days per week and are only contacted when a substitute driver is needed. They receive a monthly schedule to sign up for open routes in advance and are also contacted last minute for routes that open up same-day or with a couple days notice. Currently, our biggest need for substitute drivers are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Meal pick-up location is at FishOn restaurant in Lewes and pick-up time is 9:30am Monday -Friday.
All volunteer drivers receive a Day One orientation, hot meal bag to carry meals, thermal pack to keep meals hot, and a Meals on Wheels car windshield sign. Mileage reimbursement is offered to all drivers.
