Meals & Transportation Program

Administered through local senior centers and/or rural transportation providers throughout the 19 county region.

Home-Delivered Meals

When older adults cannot leave their homes and cannot personally prepare nutritious meals, home delivered meals are an available option. Volunteers who deliver meals to homebound older persons have an important opportunity to check on the welfare of the homebound elderly and are encouraged to report any health or other problems that they may observe during their visits.

Congregate Meals

Congregate Meals differ in that they are served in community settings such as senior centers, churches or senior housing communities. These meal sites offer an opportunity to meet new or old friends and engage in social activities while having a nutritious meal. Most sites offer a hot lunch, however some offer evening meals.

To Qualify for Meals:

  • Must be 60 years of age or older
  • Must reside in the 19 county West Central Texas Region
  • Must be unable to drive, shop or cook
