Wilder Meals on Wheels volunteers share more than a meal.


Share your time and talent to make a difference

Wilder's work is possible because people like you generously donate their time to support our mission. If you are seeking a meaningful way to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families in need, you’ve come to the right place.

Volunteer Opportunities

We never have a shortage of volunteer opportunities. In fact, a few areas almost always have openings for volunteers: The Twin Cities Mobile Market, our Meals on Wheels program, our Center for Social Healing and our Child Development Center. Whatever you choose to do as a volunteer, you can make a tremendous impact on the people we serve.

Do you have a specific skill or experience that you want to share? We will work with you to find an opportunity that’s right for you.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteers Have Flexible Opportunities

You have a chance to work with the youth, families or older adults who are participants of our various programs and services or you can even lend a hand at our events.

Volunteer opportunities are flexible and can be done on a one-time, part-time or regular basis. You can also choose to volunteer individually or in a group.

Contribute Specific Skills and Experience

Skill-based or pro-bono volunteers also contribute their experience to a variety of projects at Wilder Foundation. We occasionally have internship opportunities within our programs and services as well.

Email volunteers@wilder.org to find an opportunity that's right for you.
