What is a Flex Driver? We need flexible volunteers committed one day a week to help us fill the gaps of regular volunteers. Help us direct volunteers in the Driver’s Bay then jump in to fill a route Monday – Friday.
What does the Johnson County Drop entail? Drive a Horizons van and save mileage on your vehicle while you volunteer! We need help delivering critical hot meals to North Liberty, Monday – Friday. This shift is a quick ride down to Johnson County and back with just one stop!
Horizons’ Meals on Wheels volunteer drivers serve neighbors who live within Cedar Rapids, Hiawatha, and Marion city limits.

31 routes are outlined and labeled with a route name and number.
The yellow bag icons identify pick-up sites, where volunteers go to pick up their daily hot meals.
Every weekday, Horizons’ Meals On Wheels vans distribute hot meals to pick-up sites across town.
Pick-up sites are designated locations where volunteers go to pick up meals. Pick up times for each site are between 10:30 and 10:45 a.m. After volunteers deliver their route, the empty bags are dropped back off at the pick-up site.
All routes cover just a few miles and take about an hour to complete. Routes consist of 8 to 15 stops on average.
Thank you for taking the time to consider delivering to those who can no longer leave their homes and/or have a difficult time cooking. If you have any questions about driving a route or if you would like to ride along with another volunteer to experience a route, please call us at (319) 398-3943.
