Meals on Wheels is a national program that provides hot, home-delivered meals, 5 days a week, to people 60 and older who are unable to provide proper nutrition for themselves.
The purpose of the program is to enable people to live independently as long as possible and to relive the loneliness of those who live independently. In the Williamson County area Meals on Wheels is available in Leander, Round Rock, Taylor, Georgetown, Marble Falls and Burnet.
In order for Meals on Wheels to get hot meals to its client it depends on volunteers. To become a volunteer you will need to contact Williamson-Burnet County Opportunities at 512-763-1400 to ask about current volunteer opportunities. As a volunteer you need to be available at least one day a week for about an hour starting at 10 a.m. Companies are also welcome to volunteer and only four employees a month would be needed to cover one route.
If you’re wondering how to become a recipient of this program read the qualifying for meals section on the Williamson-Burnet County Opportunities website.
