St. Margaret Mary Parish participates in the Meal on Wheels of San Antonio program. MOW transports the meals to Monday through Friday. Parish volunteers then deliver the hot nutritious lunches to home bound seniors in Bexar County. Lunches may be deliver any time from assigned a partner who does drive.
Meals on Wheels provides home delivery lunch to residents of Bexar County who are:
60 years of age or older
Unable to travel to a senior nutrition center for lunch
Unable to prepare a meal for themselves or have anyone in the home to prepare a meal for them.
The goal of CSS is to provide a well balanced, hot meal to the homebound elderly of Bexar County. There is no charge for eligible clients; however, a small donation is suggested. All donations go back into the program to provide more meals for more seniors. Nutritious food is essential to everyone; therefore income is not a criterion for service.
The Meals on Wheels program welcomes volunteer drivers for the St. Margaret Mary route. Substitute drivers may volunteer to help Meals on Wheels deliver a hot lunch and a warm smile to our homebound elderly. Meal delivery normally takes about an hour, between the hours of 10:00 am and 1:30 pm Monday through Friday.
