There's always lots going on in the community and we're excited to be a part of it!
Meals on Wheels has just reopened our Northeast location for meal pick-up! We are continuing to work on reopening three other locations in each quadrant of the city. Log onto the Volunteer Portal to see what routes are available to pick up at the new location and meet some new neighbors!
Route pick-up will be drive-through style. All volunteers will remain in their vehicles and wear a mask throughout delivery. A staff member will greet you and take your temperature. For the safety of the seniors we serve, any volunteer reading at 99.5 or above will not be able to deliver for the day. You will then receive the route you signed up for, and meals will be loaded into your vehicle.
Below is the pick-up time, address, and days for this new site:
Location: 13420 Nacogdoches, San Antonio, TX 78217
Days: Mondays and Wednesdays
Time: 10:45am- 11:15am
Please use the following link to sign up for a route: mowsa.mowscheduler.com
Please contact Meals on Wheels Community Engagement department if you have any questions or need assistance signing up! Want to become a volunteer? Complete an application here!

Grace Notes Choir is a community choir for people living with dementia and their families. Music has the power to unlock memories and reach parts of the damaged brain in ways other forms of communication cannot. When you walk this journey with dementia, singing in a choir can help remove the isolation and brings joy.
Due to concerns regarding coronavirus, in-person rehearsals for Grace Notes Community Choir are suspended. Grace Notes Community Choir meets online Fridays from 10:30am to 11:30 am via Zoom.
To join the Grace Notes Community Choir email Stephanie. No previous choir experience necessary. As long as you enjoy music, anyone can be part of the group. It's a place where everyone belongs.
