Tarrant County volunteers nourish bodies and souls with meals and more
With a volunteer force of more than 5,000, Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County serves nearly 4,600 people throughout the county. Not only do residents in need receive meals, but volunteers also deliver items like pet food, fans, blankets, medical equipment, and supplemental groceries.
Meals on Wheels’ mission is to serve homebound individuals while helping them to maintain both dignity and independence, and it has done so since 1973.
Spanning from as far north as Grapevine and to the south in Burleson and Mansfield, from Aledo to Arlington, Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County receives more than 250 applications for assistance each month. Each client and prospective client is assigned a case manager who works with the individual to ensure his or her needs are met.
Almost as nourishing as the food is the friendship that clients form with the volunteers who deliver daily meals. That’s good for the heart and soul.
