TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Meals on Wheels may technically be closed today in East Texas due to the unusual weather, but that doesn’t mean that the organization’s clients aren’t being taken care of as far as food is concerned.
Meals on Wheels East Texas confirmed that all clients have previously received a five-day shelf stable box of food. The box includes items such as beans, tuna, crackers, fruit cups or applesauce, juice boxes, soup and powdered milk.
“Before working at Meals on Wheels, it always concerned me when the “Meals on Wheels” name scrolled across the screen as a closed business during bad weather. I worried about the seniors not receiving meals that day, especially since they couldn’t get out and their family could not get to them safely,” Tiffany Damskov, Marketing and PR Director for Meals on Wheels East, said in a Facebook post this morning. “Family member may need to remind them about that box on their shelf, but they do have options to get them through until the next visit from their friends at Meals on Wheels.”
