Meals on Wheels

Categories: Uncategorized

Often, people who are served by Meals On Wheels are the only real face and meal that many shut-ins and seniors will see all day.

My grandfather, Simon, lived to the age of 92. He lived alone for the last couple of years of his life, except for his last year when I came to stay with him. He was very grateful for the friends from Meal-On-Wheels who would deliver a fresh, nutritious meal with a smile every day.

I can remember how much it would mean to him. As a shut-in, who was unable to get out to the store or restaurants, he would go most of the day without real human contact. Except for that one knock on the door.

Restoration Covenant Church is pulling together teams of friends to go and serve Meal On Wheels in Round Rock this summer, but we’re discovering that the need is more than we can handle. Teams can include teenagers and kids (as long as an adult is present). Our vision for this program is that teams of friends would go out and serve together.

Often, people served by MoW won’t eat well or see a live friendly face unless someone stops by.

Please consider your capacity to help & email Nancy Brieger to get connected.

And if you live somewhere other than Round Rock, check in with your area MoW to see if they’re ready for the summer season.
