Northwest Assistance Ministires offers free meals to clients through its Joanne Watford Nutrition Center and Meals on Wheels program.

Northwest Assistance Ministries is seeking additional volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels from its three locations: the main building at 15555 Kuykendahl Road, Houston; Lifepath Church at 17703 West Little York Road, Houston; and Windwood Presbyterian Church at 10555 Spring Cypress Road, Houston.

Volunteer drivers deliver meals to the doors of seniors and other neighbors who are homebound due to disability or illness, and are encouraged to interact positively with the people they service, according to a July 2 news release from NAM.

“We are currently serving 800 meals Mon.-Fri. across 24 different zip codes, and our need for volunteer drivers is greater than ever before,” NAM's Senior Services Director Grace Jackson said in the news release. “We continue to see a need in our community and we rely on volunteers to deliver these meals to hundreds of people that otherwise would go hungry. Volunteers are truly the lifeline these individuals have, and we couldn’t do what we do without them."

Routes are available Mon.-Fri. from 9 a.m. to noon. To serve as a driver for Meals on Wheels, volunteers must be at least 18 years old and have a car and valid driver's license.

Prospective volunteers must attend volunteer orientation, which are held the first Wednesday and third Thursday of every month at 10 a.m. at NAM's main building.

Those interested in volunteering should contact NAM’s Community Relations Coordinator Courtney Frost-Tadlock by calling 281-885-4604 or emailing volunteer@namonline.org. Prospective volunteers can also visit www.namonline.org to download the volunteer application and learn more about other volunteer opportunities.
