All volunteer drivers must attend a training class and pass a background check prior to being assigned a route. Orientation is held every Wednesday at 2 PM at our McKinney office .

  • Print the background check and volunteer application forms.

  • Reserve a spot for training. Walk-ins are welcome as well.

  • Bring a copy of your driver’s license, current auto insurance card, completed background check and volunteer application forms with you.

  • Please note there’s a $10.00 fee to cover the background check–good for 2 years.

  • KITCHEN VOLUNTEERS! Kitchen Safety Note: Appropriate clothing for volunteering in the kitchen includes: a) Long pants:  No shorts for safety reasons in case of spills. b) Closed toed shoes: No sandals.  Rubber soles that are slip resistant are recommended.

For corporations and/or organizations interested in participating in a corporate takeover, we provide mobile training, where our skilled trainers will come to your company to present our orientation to your staff. For more information, please contact our office at 972-632-3125 or email her at [email protected]

Volunteer Stories

Every volunteer has a great story to tell, and we want to hear yours. Check out our reviews below and add yours, too!

Donald is 87 years old with a shunt in his brain to drain excess fluid.

He enjoys painting landscapes, animals, and people. Throughout his home you can find amazing pieces of art he has painted just like the one seen here. Donald has been with MOWCC for two years and the meals have helped him to continue to live and function independently in his own home while maintaining a healthy diet.

Dorothy is a 90 year old woman who has been on our services for a year now. She was recommended for our services because her sons work all day and she cannot cook for herself. Since becoming a client of MOWCC, she has increased her vegetable and fruit intake, and is getting nutritious meals. All of these things have helped her maintain her individuality and allowing her to continue to stay at home, giving her sons peace of mind when they are not there.

To Meals On Wheels (Angels in Disguise)

Thank you so much for the hot meals, which are delicious, and especially the two boxes of food and household items that were delivered. Most of the items we pass by in the store because we can’t afford them. Your help is a great relief.
