Meals on Wheels rolls to new spot

The Meals on Wheels center in Hillsboro has moved to a new location with a larger kitchen, more parking and a larger dining area.

The new site is at 541 S.E. Baseline Road, which used to be a restaurant. The original Meals on Wheels site opened in the fellowship hall of All Saints Episcopal Church in Hillsboro in 2006.

In the wake of the move, the Meals on Wheels organization is seeking additional volunteers to help with everything from dishwashing to packing and delivering meals.

The Hillsboro Center opens for coffee and snacks at 9 a.m. Monday through Friday and lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The suggested donations is $3.

Kitchen volunteers are needed every weekday beginning at 9 a.m.

Drivers must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. For more information, call 503-648-2950.

The nonprofit organization has provided meals and social connections to seniors through 34 sites in Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties. Meals are served at the center and delivered to homebound seniors with the help of 8,550 volunteers. It served and delivered about 1 million meals last year.

Meals are delivered Monday through Friday between 10:30 a.m. and noon. Homebound seniors 60 and older who cannot cook can call 503-736-6325 to register.
