Meals On Wheels is a home delivered meal program for senior citizens who are homebound and have difficulty shopping, preparing or cooking meals for themselves.
Meals On Wheels clients who live in Weatherford will receive a lunchtime meal between 10:30 am and 1:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Meals are delivered by volunteers who ensure the safety and well-being of each client.
Parker County Routes
Meals On Wheels clients who live outside of Weatherford, but are in Parker County, will receive a pack of ten lunches that are frozen, plus snacks every other week. Meals are fully cooked, and only need warming in a microwave. Delivery times may be between 10:30 am and the end of the business day. Meals are delivered by volunteers who ensure the safety and well-being of each client during their visit.
Eligibility *NEW REQUIREMENTS*
Individuals who are at least 60 years of age, married couples or single living alone and unable to drive may be eligible for Meals On Wheels.
An assessment to determine eligibility will be scheduled by the Case Manager. The Case Manager will make a home visit to complete the assessment, answer questions, and make recommendation for service delivery schedule.
Individuals who receive Meals On Wheels are never denied services for inability to contribute toward the cost of their meals. There is no charge for this service. Donations, in any amount, are always needed and appreciated. Donations may be made by individuals, family and community members at any time. Donation envelopes are provided to Meals On Wheels clients at the beginning of the month with the monthly menu and activity calendars. Donations may also be made in person at the Senior Center or online.
Individuals, families, church groups, civic groups and businesses are welcome to volunteer for Meals On Wheels. Individuals at least 18 years of age are asked to complete a volunteer application, provide a copy of driver's license and insurance. A background check will be conducted prior to approval. Meals On Wheels clients look forward to seeing their volunteers each day. When they provide feedback to the staff about the program, getting to know and visit with their volunteers is at the top of the list of things they like about Meals On Wheels! See the Volunteer page for more details.
