The Meals on Wheels Program

Program Manager: Adrian Perez Garnica

The Meals on Wheels program has been dedicated to preparing and delivering nutritious meals to homebound, elderly and disabled individuals of our community for over 40 years. But that’s not all we deliver. We also provide friendly interaction and a connection to the outside world to our clients.

Meals on Wheels delivered more than 90,000 hot nutritious ready to eat meals to our seniors across Webb County. One of our goals is to ensure that our senior citizen and disabled adults are provided with nutritious meals and a friendly smile.
