Meals on Wheels marks 35 years of service

Meals on Wheels Ministry celebrated 35 years of serving East Texas today. Today at an anniversary luncheon, they thanked community members for being so generous.

They say because of community support, their growth has been tremendous.

"With First Christian church leading the charge, they began serving 12 or 14 meals and now serve over 3500 a day. The growth is phenomenal. With 6 counties that we cover, serving out of Tyler, beginning at 4:00 am each morning, it's a tremendous job and a tremendous, tremendous reward," said Rachel Hatt.

Meals on Wheels has raised over $200,000 in the last 3 months.
