MEALS ON WHEELS: North Texas Giving Day is Sept. 22

Meals on Wheels North Central Texas is taking part in North Texas Giving Day Thursday, Sept. 22.

This online giving event is designed to empower the community to give back to their neighbors through an easy-to–use platform.

Early giving is open now.

For the homebound and disabled seniors who rely on Meals on Wheels North Central Texas, their needs have increased as we continue to see increased costs of food fuel and other basic needs.

Regardless of the pandemic, our mission to ending hunger and isolation, delivering dignity and independence has not gone away.

Funding is urgently needed to continue the ongoing efforts of the home-delivered meal program.

Meals on Wheels North Central Texas is a community-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves homebound seniors and disabled persons. Established in 1976 serving Johnson County seniors, expanding in 2001 to include Ellis County, and expanding once again in 2020 to serve Navarro County seniors.

We mobilize across 2,772 square miles each week day to ensure our seniors are well-fed, safe, and reminded of their value to their community.

Services are targeted toward 60 years and older focusing on those who are homebound, older in age, low income, isolated, frail, or incapacitated. Meals on Wheels also acts as a resource for families caring for needy elderly and disabled loved ones.

The philosophy of Meals on Wheels is simple. Emphasis is placed on individuals versus numbers; communities as opposed to governmental boundaries; and timely services versus waiting lists.
