Mission: Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson & Ellis Counties serves the children of yesterday by helping needy homebound elderly and disabled people remain independent and healthy in their homes by providing home-delivered meals, daily personal contact, and support for individuals and their families.
Results: We help over 2,800 individuals each year remain independent and healthy. Over 500 volunteers help us deliver meals and so much more to their elderly and disabled neighbors in need.
Programs: Needs being addressed by Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson & Ellis Counties are hunger, malnutrition, isolation, access to community resources, and the inability to maintain home setting. MOWJEC provides home delivered meals delivered by volunteers to frail, isolated elderly and disabled persons who cannot adequately prepare meals for themselves. MOWJEC now serves over 600 persons a day in both Johnson and Ellis Counties. The agency continues to grow with the help of local and community support,in spite of significant financial losses from federal and state budget cuts.
This wonderful organization does exactly what it says, delivering much needed meals and just as important, a smiling face with the meal to those in need. Meals on Wheels has the highest care and concern for the Elderly and runs their organization with professionalism. I am blessed and consider it a privilege to be a part of that!
I have given to the Johnson County Meals on Wheels since not long after moving to the Burleson area. The work they do in providing much needed meals to the elderly and disabled folks and also, maybe just as important, the daily personal contact the recipients receive is invaluable! Some years ago I assisted in deliveries in another County and saw first hand what this means to the people we served. I consider it a great privilege to be a part of this most wonderful organization and encourage all to give to the Johnson County Meals on Wheels organization.
