Waverley Borough Council Community Meals Service


Volunteers for delivering Community Meals needed urgently

We are seeking enthusiastic volunteers that can spare a couple of hours a week or every two weeks to transport and deliver meals to residents in the Godalming area. 

Volunteers can either be put on a list for ad-hoc work, help out temporarily or on a rota to work as little as one hour every three weeks.

The Community Meals Service supports residents that are unable to prepare or cook for themselves.  

Volunteers are an important part of our service to deliver the meals: for our clients who depend on this service, a quick chat and a warm hello can make all the difference.  They are so grateful for the service and this social contact is really important to them.

Its great fun meeting our clients:  We are really proud of our new service and would love you to join our friendly team.

  • Volunteers need to be able to lift and carry the food boxes and climb stairs if necessary.

  • We pay our volunteers 45p per mile to travel from the Council offices, to people's homes and back again.
