Meals on Wheels of San Antonio currently serves approximately 4,000 nutritious meals a day to elderly and disabled persons residing in Bexar Country. It enables seniors to remain more healthy and independent in their own homes, where they want to be, avoiding far more costly healthcare alternatives, such as unnecessary 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 convenient 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.
Fun Fact: The cost of 1 year on Meals on Wheels is equal to the cost of 7 days in a nursing facility!
So come on and join our awesome MOW Volunteer Team!
