Meals on Wheels Ministry
Our mission is to help the elderly and disabled remain independent and in their own homes as long as possible. We prepare and deliver a hot lunch to our client's homes Monday – Thursday. Our volunteers usually come once a week to pick up the hot meals and deliver a route. They provide their own vehicle and each route takes 1 to 1 ½ hours to deliver. We have volunteer sites in Tyler and 24 other towns within our 6 County areas.
