Volunteer with Chinese Meals on Wheels
The Health and Home Care Society of BC (Care BC) Chinese Meals on Wheels Program serves nearly 200 meals per day to isolated seniors in Vancouver and Richmond.
Volunteers provide isolated Vancouver and Richmond residents with hot meals, warm visits and informal checks on their safety.
We are in need of volunteers for the following positions:
Meal courier: Transports meals from the kitchen to various depots in Vancouver and Richmond. Also returns the previous day's empty containers to the kitchen.

If you have a license but no vehicle we also have partnerships with Modo at no charge.
We provide orientation, support, and mileage reimbursement and will work around how much time you have to give. We would love you to join our team and help us to provide meals and care with a smile!
Most volunteers volunteer once per week, however, we can accomodate and welcome any time that you are willing to give!
Please note a police check is required for all Meals On Wheels volunteers
This role is suitable for all people, however, people under the age of 19 would need to volunteer with an adult guardian. We have a number of supported volunteers who deliver meals with their support worker. There needs to be an adult who can drive.
