Johnson County Meals on Wheels is looking for volunteers who have just one extra hour a month during their lunch break to deliver meals to homebound seniors.

Johnson County Meals on Wheels delivers a hot, nutritious noon meal to these individuals. However we provide more than a meal. We also serve as a daily check on homebound seniors to make sure they are doing well.
