Last month Spokane Valley Meals on Wheels, delivered 9,236 meals to the homes of seniors and served 6,764 meals at their on-site location. All of that was accomplished with the help of volunteers. According to Pam Almeida, Executive Director of Spokane Valley’s Meal on Wheels, it’s not enough. 

To volunteer, it doesn’t take much. “We need 20 more volunteers,'” explained Almeida. “They would be delivering meals on every route through out the city and Spokane County. They can do it once a week or month. They’ll deliver to about 10-15 people.”

The only requirements to volunteer is a background check, a reliable vehicle, a drivers license and compassion. 

Almeida called it a “a small commitment,” continuing, “but it’s extremely rewarding.”
