Meals on Wheels

Lubbock Meals on Wheels works year-round to help people remain at home, well fed, and independent.  This year, Lubbock Meals on Wheels expects to prepare and deliver holiday meals to over 700 people in the Lubbock community.  Deliveries are really so much more than a meal.  For some people, a friendly volunteer is the only person that they may see during the day.  Lubbock Meals on Wheels follow up on the well-being of everyone that is not home to receive our delivery, daily.

In addition to a hot meal and a warm visit, Lubbock Meals on Wheels also delivers newspapers, pet food, fresh flowers on Fridays, a cake and card on birthdays, magazines and books, weekend meal sacks, emergency meals, and fresh fruit on holidays.

We furnish weekend meal assistance for MOW clients. Donations of single-serve items (see list) are accepted Monday - Wednesday 10:00am – 4:00pm
