Volunteer Opportunities in Austin


1 in 6 seniors in America face the threat of hunger and malnourishment. More live in social isolation.

With the senior population expected to double by 2050, we need you to join a new generation of volunteers today.

For 50 years, Meals on Wheels Central Texas has relied on volunteers who share our dedication to helping Central Texas seniors live independent and healthy lives.

With the support of our volunteer community, we expanded from delivering to 29 seniors in 1972 to serving more than 5,000 older adults today!

Start Now



By delivering meals to seniors in Central Texas, you can help ensure our community’s older adults remain independent. As a volunteer, you will do so much more than deliver a nutritious meal – you provide social interaction for homebound seniors who may be isolated. Volunteers also conduct safety checks while delivering meals, ensuring our seniors are safe in their homes. And it takes just one lunch hour per week!

Start Now



Getting started is as easy as 1, 2, 3!


Start by filling out our 10-minute application here. Please be prepared to upload a copy of your driver’s license or government issued ID and current auto insurance, if you are driving. Go here to watch our training video. You will then be invited to complete a scheduled orientation via Zoom. After you have completed the training, MOWCTX staff will run background checks. Once approved, you let us know where and when you would like to deliver and we will sign you up!
