Issues: Food

Location: 3001 Robertson Road Tyler TX 75701 USA

Mission: To provide hot, nutritious meals and other nutritional foods, and a daily safety check to men and women who are elderly, homebound, disabled, frail, or at risk. Our program enables the elderly and disabled to remain in their own homes as long as possible.
Results: We held our annual fundraising banquet in October 2010 to help offset a $200,000 budget cut we are facing. We hope to raise more money in the near future in order to keep Seniors off our waiting list and feed more Seniors in more parts of Texas.
Target demographics: Senior Citizens or Low-income Seniors, or disabled individuals East Texas counties: Gregg, Henderson, Smith, Upshur, Van Zandt, and Wood.
Geographic areas served: East Texas including 6 counties: Henderson, Wood, Van Zandt, Upshur, Greg, and Smith
Programs: Meals on Wheels Home Delivery: Senior Citizens or disabled individuals may qualify to have a nutritionally balanced lunch delivered each weekday to their home. All meals meet RDA requirements and are prepared fresh daily. A small paid delivery staff and a core group of community volunteers deliver the meals each day. Liquid Supplemental Nutrition Program(The Ensure Program): Meals on Wheels clients who have been advised by their physician to enhance their diets with supplemental drinks or cannot eat solid foods, may purchase these at a significant discount. A current prescription is required, and the supplement must be picked up at a Meals on Wheels site. In some cases, delivery is available.

I volunteer with my 3 year old son, and it is a GREAT way for us to do something that makes an impact together. He is learning so much about sharing and giving. That makes it all the more valuable to our family! Thank you Meals on Wheels for doing a great service in our community.
