Meals on Wheels & Noon Congregate Meals

Monthly Menus:

Burnet/Marble Falls Area - September

Georgetown - December

Leander - December

Round Rock/Taylor - December

Program Purpose

  • Provide hot, home-delivered meals, five days a week to those who, due to illness, age, or disability, are unable to provide proper nutrition for themselves.
  • Enable the homebound to live independently as long as possible.
  • Relieve the isolation and loneliness of the home-bound
  • Provide hot, nutritious meals and companionship to seniors at Senior Centers, Monday through Friday at noon.
How it Works

Home delivered meals are provided to those who live in the area and qualify, because they are homebound and over 60. Because of funding shortfalls, there may be a waiting list for homebound services. Please contact your local site leader for an assessment.

People over 60 are invited to eat meals at the senior centers and fill out paperwork for funding. Meals on Wheels and senior center meals are provided at no cost to recipients.

Each person receiving meals is asked to make a monthly “cost share” contribution to help cover the costs if they can. A cost share donation is $2.00 per meal. No one will be turned away who can not contribute. Donations help to cover the cost of the program that is not funded by federal or state dollars.

Qualifying for Meals

For home delivered meals, the client must be over 60 and homebound by reason of illness, incapacitating disability, or frailty. Other criteria include those who are 60 and over and are homebound and unable to prepare meals due to limited mobility, psychological or mental impairment, are unable to safely prepare nourishing and well-balanced meals, and are without resources such as family friends or other community services to provide them with meals.

For congregate meals, a person must be over 60 years old.

There are no financial qualifications for either program, but home delivered meals programs are focused on low income participants.

Meals can be provided for guests a long as the entire cost of the meal is recovered and it does not deprive an eligible person of receiving a meal.  Guests and anyone who has not filled out the appropriate paperwork for program participation must pay $7.00 for a meal. Qualified participants are also given the opportunity to share in the cost of the meal. We request a contribution of $3.00.  No eligible person shall be denied a meal if they do not contribute.

Volunteers and donations are always needed, welcomed and appreciated!
