Meals on Wheels South Texas & H-E-B Partner Once Again to Deliver 1,000 Meals to Homebound Individuals
Meals on Wheels South Texas will deliver 1,000 holiday meals to homebound individuals in Victoria County and in Cuero on Friday, December 16th. The meals are sponsored by H-E-B as part of the chain’s Feast of Sharing. It will be Meals on Wheels South Texas’ third year participating in this monumental and rewarding event, taking H-E-B’s celebrated feast to homebound members of our community.
Preparations are already underway in the MOWSTx kitchen. Executive Chef Brenda Amaya made additional efforts to find enough turkeys to fill every plate. Turkey shortages and inflation made sourcing and planning this year’s Feast that much more challenging. “This takes weeks of preparation,” she says, “but our kitchen is working hard to make sure every recipient gets a nice, warm Christmas meal for Feast of Sharing.”
MOWSTx will deliver both to current clients and additional homebound individuals, who can sign up by contacting Meals on Wheels South Texas by phone or email or via mowstx.org. Meals are free, courtesy of H-E-B. Current clients of Meals on Wheels South Texas will be signed up automatically.
An undertaking of this size requires all hands helping, and more volunteers are needed to deliver and prepare in the days leading up to the 16th.
“It's a great thing that we’re doing,” said one of last year’s kitchen volunteers. “It’s so much fun to volunteer for this.”
To volunteer in the kitchen during the preceding days (Dec 12-15), contact our volunteer manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 361-576-2189.
Sign up to deliver meals by phone or email or via mowstx.org. In consideration of the surrounding neighborhood and potential traffic, pickups are staggered at 11am, 12pm, and 1pm.
