Meals on Wheels is part of a 3 nonprofit organization through Christian Senior Services, providing more than 900,000 meals to people in need. Meals on Wheels of San Antonio delivers nutritious food to elderly and disabled persons residing in Bexar Country. It enables seniors to remain more healthy and indepedent in their own homes, where they want to be, avoiding far more costly healthcare alternatives, such as unneccessary trips to the emergency room, hospitalizations, and nursing home placements. The meals we deliver, as well as daily visits from our volunteers, provide nutrition and companionship to fight the loneliness, depression, and chronic illnesses that affect many seniors.
There are a few different volunteer opportunities at Meals on Wheels, with the most convienient and impactful way is by becoming a Meal Delivery Volunteer. This opportunity only requires about an hour of your time delivering food to our clients. We also have kitchen volunteering that includes meal packaging, meal prep, and cleaning.
Fun Fact: The cost of 1 year on Meals on Wheels is equal to the cost of 7 days in a nursing facility!
