Volunteering opportunities in the Meals-on-Wheels program

Meal preparation:

Volunteers in the kitchen prepare and package 100-120 meals per day, 5 days per week (Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat). On each of these days, there is a morning shift which takes place from 9:30am to 12:30pm and an afternoon shift from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.

A community cook is present to answer any questions you may have and to guide volunteers in their work. Volunteering in the kitchen is a great opportunity to meet other volunteers. There is always music playing and there are interesting people around.


Deliveries:

Meal-on-wheels deliveries are not only an essential service, but are also an opportunity to break social isolation among our client-members. Whether chatting at the door for 5 minutes or taking half an hour for a visit, meal deliveries are one way we try to create connections between generations.

Meal deliveries start at 2:45pm from our office located in the borough of Plateau-Mont-Royal, where volunteers come in to pick up the meals and delivery bags. The delivery routes are in different boroughs of Montreal and are done either by car, bike, public transit or by foot. It is possible to do the deliveries alone or in pairs and the delivery routes last about 2-3 hours from start to finish. Staff members remain available by phone during delivery routes if there are any problems. Once all meals have been delivered, volunteers return to the Roulant to check-in with staff.


We also have volunteering opportunities available to help in our urban agriculture and farm programs as well with special projects such as data entry, administrative tasks, events and much more. To find out more, you can visit our website or contact us by email at volunteering@santropolroulant.org.
