Meals on Wheels

The Problem

More than 50% of seniors who visit emergency rooms arrive malnourished. Senior hunger is one of the most pressing public health problems of our time.

As we age, we enter a continuum of physical decline – reaching a point where we are not ready for nursing home care, but do need assistance to remain at home. Local family members are often overwhelmed, while those at a distance are unable to provide daily physical support. This reality leaves many of our homebound elderly hungry and isolated, unable to prepare a nutritious meal for themselves.

The Solution

Meals on Wheels in an efficient and robust solution, yet so simple. The homebound elderly receive the nutrition they need, a smiling face at their door, and the opportunity to remain at home – where they want to live.

Economically, the impact is immense. With help from hundreds of volunteers, Meals on Wheels Montgomery County delivers an entire year’s worth of meals to one homebound person at a cost lower than one day in a hospital or six days in a nursing home.

As the only organization in Montgomery County to offer meal delivery services to the homebound elderly, our work is especially critical. Each weekday, our Meals on Wheels program cooks and delivers more than 550 hot meals to homebound seniors in Montgomery County.

A Well-Balanced Meal

To help our seniors receive optimal nutrition, all menus are designed to meet very specific nutritional guidelines – monitoring calories, fat, vitamins, calcium, sodium, potassium, fiber, and protein.  With more than 35 menu options, our customers never eat the same meal twice within a one month period.

All hot meals are cooked in and distributed from our kitchen in The Woodlands. Our talented chefs, John and Chad, keep the kitchen pristine, maintaining the highest culinary standards. And the best part – the meals taste great too.

As our aging community continues to grow, the need for services continues to rise with more than 350 seniors waiting to begin service. Learn more about our efforts to Eliminate the Waitlist.
