Meals on Wheels
Intake line: (281) 885-4622
Meals on Wheels delivers hot, well-balanced meals to the doors of seniors and other neighbors who are homebound because of disability or illness.
By supporting their nutritional needs, this program helps participants maintain or improve their health, remain independent, and stay in their homes for as long as possible.
Volunteer drivers collaborate to deliver thousands of hot, nutritious meals six days per week. Qualifying individuals receive meals each weekday, and Saturday meals are provided to some clients. Drivers also deliver groceries once a month to low-income seniors through NAM’s Senior Food program.
With each delivery, volunteers provide a few moments of conversation, a check on their clients’ well-being, and something for seniors to look forward to each day.
