Nutrition for the Soul (Pictured above, MOWLR client Mrs. Johnson and volunteer Cameron) – Our volunteers deliver more than just meals. We are often the only interaction that our clients have all day. A laugh and a smile are quite nutritious too!

Meals On Wheels of Lewes-Rehoboth could not exist without the help of our more than 110 weekly volunteers. Together, they help deliver over 300 meals a day to our seniors and homebound neighbors in the Lewes-Rehoboth area.

Volunteer Drivers

Volunteers are needed to help deliver meals to our homebound client recipients. Delivering meals takes about an hour and a half of your time. We would love to have compassionate people, (like you), in the homes of our steadily-growing client base. By delivering meals, you bring nutritious food and a welcome visit to seniors and homebound residents in your local community. Most volunteers deliver meals to anywhere from as few as 10 to as many as 20 clients on a given route. They are rewarded by the satisfaction of assisting those who need and appreciate their services. Becoming a volunteer driver for MOWLR is a great way to make a huge impact for the lives of many, in a short amount of time. If interested in finding out how to sign up to volunteer, please use the forms below or contact Katie.

Meal Delivery FAQ

“Delivering or making meals, to/for those in need, is always a great way to start a day about being thankful! Meals On Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth, the kitchen staff of Fish On, and their volunteers are a blessing! Good work guys!”

– Eric Atkins (MOWLR volunteer extraordinaire)
