These meals are prepared fresh at the central kitchen located at 3001 Robertson Road, Tyler, TX. The meals are then home-delivered by compassionate volunteers to eligible persons who cannot provide meals for themselves. Often this is the only meal they will have that day.
Meals on Wheels has served the senior citizens of East Texas since 1973. From its humble beginnings in Tyler, serving 14 people per day, this charitable work has grown tremendously and now reaches six counties and 55 communities daily. Just last year, over 750,000+ meals were served by Meals on Wheels.
Our goals are:
To supply homebound seniors and disabled citizens nutritious meals.
To abate the loneliness and isolation of elderly and disabled persons by providing daily contact with members of their communities.
To promote the health, safety, and welfare of all elderly and disabled persons in East Texas.
