Citrus County’s Meals on Wheels Program joins the National Meals On Wheels Association of America with the goal that “no senior goes hungry.” 

In order to ensure that every homebound senior gets a meal, the program needs volunteers to help make deliveries.

Do you have a few hours a week to give of your time? If so, your local Meals on Wheels Program could use your help.

Citrus County Meals on Wheels delivers around the lunchtime hours, Monday through Friday. Volunteers are needed who are willing to give approximately two hours of their time, one day a week, to deliver meals to seniors.

Each meal route consists of 10 to 20 stops, taking one to two hours to complete, and you will even be reimbursed for your mileage. The program is currently in need of drivers at all meal delivery locations in Citrus County. The seniors look forward to seeing volunteers each day.

Many people are waiting for your assistance, so what are you waiting for? Become someone’s hero today.

For more information or to become a volunteer driver, call 352-527-5975.
