Major Ward’s Delivery at Meals on Wheels
The City of Hurst’s Mayor Ward accompanied Meals On Wheels volunteer, Dorothy Romero, on a home delivery route to learn more about the services provided to the homebound residents in the Northeast Tarrant area. The first stop was St. Phillips Presbyterian Church, which provides space for meal distribution. After packing up nutritious hot meals for the nine recipients on their route, they set out to bring a smile to the faces of our homebound neighbors. Mayor Ward spoke to the residents and was amazed at some of their life journeys, noting that they served a veteran and a retired public servant as well as a couple whose children live too far away to be able to make daily visits.
Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County provides nearly 4,000 meals per day to homebound elderly and disabled clients through a volunteer network of over 5,000 caring individuals who donate their time, vehicles, gasoline, and energy to deliver nearly 1 million fresh, nutritious meals annually to Tarrant County residents.
For the past 42 years, Meals On Wheels has served the citizens of Tarrant County who have benefited from the delivery of nearly 18 million meals.
Meals On Wheels provides nutritious meals and a powerful socialization opportunity for seniors to help combat loneliness and isolation, and helps them maintain their health and independence.
