Meals on Wheels is warning of the risk of elderly people being malnourished or going hungry.

The nonprofit cooks up about 4,000 meals a day but knows with one in six seniors at risk of going hungry, there are many more people who need the help.

A local non-profit that feeds thousands of San Antonio senior citizens, is in need of help to keep making meals for the growing number of clients.

Odell Lewis, 94, is a World War 2 veteran and a Meals on Wheels client.

The non-profit provides a hot meal to more than 3,000 home bound seniors daily across Bexar County with over 200 volunteers.

“It's a great thing to have this,” added Lewis.
