Meals on Wheels on North Central Texas
Since 2015, Meals on Wheels has partnered with HEB and Lost Oak Winery to create a beautiful area for families to enjoy the outdoors, grab some cute Fall family pictures and support our senior neighbors.
From the idea 5 years ago, this event has raised over $12,720 for our senior neighbors and continues to be a community favorite! Throughout the years, we have struggled with rainy months, have celebrated the patch going “viral” and we all continue to be thankful to all who come out! It is a labor of love – a true community partnership. HEB generously donates the pumpkins and Lost Oak Winery generously provides the Fall decorations and creative designs to keep the area looking spectacular!
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.
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.
Our mission is to end hunger and isolation while delivering dignity and Independence.
We mobilize across 2,772 square miles to ensure our seniors are well-fed, safe, and reminded of their value to their community. With almost half of our clients living alone, we are a formidable advocate for a vulnerable population facing food insecurity, unattended injury, and loneliness.
We are truly humbled, honored and thankful for our faithful partners in helping us raise awareness and funding for our isolated senior neighbors.
