Meal Delivery Volunteer

Help deliver more than a meal to seniors and disabled community members in Bexar County. You are providing moments of personal connection – a smile, a heartfelt nod, a brief respite from countless hours alone.

Must pass the following verification checks:

  • Criminal Background History

  • Medicare Fraud Check

I CAN'T VOLUNTEER FOR MEAL DELIVERY, HOW CAN I HELP?

Approximately 4,000 individuals receive 5 meals each week. Each meal costs $7 to produce. It would be greatly appreciated if you are able to make a donation of any size to support our efforts. You can donate online and via Venmo or Cash App (Username: @mowsatx).  A $7 gift = more than a meal for a neighbor in need.
