MoWaM sets the standard for basis needs delivery in Central Texas. The holistic approach provides so much more than a hot meal. Our volunteers provide life-sustaining support for our neighbors in need.

This organization represents the very best in life affirming services that allow our clients to live independently with dignity. The full spectrum of services offered provides a comprehensive support structure. Beginning with the hot nutrious meal that provides critical health benefits, our case managers insure that our clients needs are met on many levels. A four star rating from Charity Navigator for six years running attests to the quality of our program.

At a time when our public sector is growing harsher with its choices… choosing to add to the burdens of those who have nothing (or next to nothing)… and at a time when our economy is pushing more families to their limits… the role of organizations like Austin’s own Meals on Wheels and More becomes even more critical.

As a donor, I look for an organization that is as creative and as resourceful as those who are scraping to get by. I expect that organization to be compassionate. But that compassion must be married to deep competence if not excellence or that compassion, in real terms, will be unsustainable. Finally, I look for an organization who has a leader with a commitment to service coursing through his or her veins… and who wants nothing more than to be useful and to help our “modern lepers”… the ones we shun and a turn a blind eye toward. I am fortunate to have found one such organization and one such leader: Meals on Wheels and More… and Dan Pruett.
