About Us

Mission & History

Our Vision

A community where no senior is hungry or lonely and everyone has what they need to successfully age in place.

Our Mission

Providing services that support seniors in our service area as they age in place, where they want to be.  

Our History

Since 1979 we have provided home-delivered meals for homebound seniors through our meal delivery program; congregate meals, health screenings, and recreational activities at our senior citizen centers; and transportation to medical and personal care appointments and other destinations for those over 60 who can no longer drive themselves.

For our first 40 years, we served primarily within the city limits of Victoria. Then, in 2020, in response to increased demand from COVID-19, MOWSTx - then Meals on Wheels Victoria - began to deliver throughout Victoria County. In July 2021 with the help of United Way of the Crossroads, MOWSTx expanded to central DeWitt County. 2022 saw our service area expand to an eight-county region, and to reflect our commitment to serving seniors across our service area, we renamed to Meals on Wheels South Texas.
