Meals on Wheels (MOW)

Program Overview

The Meals on Wheels Association of America is the oldest and largest membership organization supporting the national network of more than 5,000 Senior Nutrition Programs that operate in all 50 states and U.S. territories. The tireless work of these programs – supported by a dedicated army of 2 million volunteers – delivers a nutritious meal, a warm smile, and a safety check that helps keep 2.5 million seniors healthy, safe, and living independently in their own homes each year.

Meals on Wheels (MOW), funded by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS), Molina Healthcare, Texas Department of Agricultural, United Way, and Private Insurance Providers, provides hot, home-delivered meals to age-appropriate individuals who meet the requirements of the programs for services. Individuals with limited mobility due to illness or a disability may also qualify for the program. This program enables individuals to live independently as long as possible, relieving them from isolation and loneliness and providing nutritious meals. Over 100 households in Navarro County have benefited from receiving hot-delivered meals daily.

Frequently Asked Questions

Meals on Wheels is a nationwide network of community-based, non-profit programs dedicated to providing seniors in their communities with the support that enables them to remain living in their own homes, where they want to be. This support is typically a nutritious meal, a friendly visit, and a quick safety check.
Meals on Wheels primarily provides nutritious meals, a quick safety check, and much-needed human connection to homebound seniors. Some communities offer additional services that keep seniors healthy and safe, like pet food delivery, senior center meal programs, home repair services, and transportation. Each local program works with its community’s needs and resources to provide a community-specific solution.

The reality is that 9 million seniors in America struggle with hunger, 15 million live in isolation, and 18 million live in or near poverty. This problem will only become more severe as the senior population is projected to double by 2050. Families are spread out, and elders are left behind, often struggling to remain self-sufficient.

Seniors threatened with hunger and social isolation make up the core of Meals on Wheels clients. Specific qualifications vary by the community; however, services typically require physical or financial challenges to their ability to eat healthy meals and move freely about their communities. In many areas, there are not enough local resources to meet the need, leading to the creation of waiting lists full of people who need the service but are not yet recipients.
Our program is free of charge and is designed to nourish and enrich the lives of the people we serve, allowing them to live at home with dignity and independence.
The process begins with an application, which may then lead to an assessment of the need for meals and other supportive services. You may be required to submit a referral letter from a doctor or social worker.
