Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Meals on Wheels provides a hot, noon-time meal five days a week. In addition to the meal delivery, volunteers provide a safety check ensuring the safety of our clients. Meals on Wheels helps clients maintain health, independence, and dignity.

We utilize more than 600 local volunteers to deliver the meals directly to the clients' homes. Financial resources come from a variety of funding sources such as individual donors, businesses, civic clubs and churches, foundations, United Way funding, Golf Benefit, and limited federal and state grants.

Meals on Wheels North Central Texas has been part of the community fabric since 1976. We have developed a “Meals on Wheels" family that is based upon philanthropy, volunteerism, and service. We continue to leverage numerous funding streams to serve as many needy individuals as possible.

We have 88 delivery routes and at the end of FY2018 we served over 225,000 meals to people in need. Additional services include: AniMeals for our clients' four-legged family members, nutritional supplements at cost and client support. We are helping nourish the body and spirit of our homebound neighbors.
