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 our volunteers, who are trained to contact PCCOA staff if the client does not answer the door or there are any other issues. This provides a way to 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.
To be eligible for home-delivered meals from Meals On Wheels, a person must be age 60 or over, homebound (even for a short time), unable to prepare a nutritious meal, and not have anyone available to help him or her on a regular basis.
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 a recommendation for service.
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. Getting to know their volunteers is at the top of the list of things clients enjoy about Meals On Wheels, according to surveys. See the Volunteer page for more details.
