Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston

Interfaith Ministries' Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston program provides a home delivered meal to home-bound seniors over 60. The program also delivers breakfast and weekend meals to the most frail and isolated seniors. The nutritional support helps seniors stay independent and in their own homes. This service is available to homebound individuals 60 years old and older and spouses of current service recipients at no fee. Sign up by contacting us at 713-533-4978.

Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston is able to serve seniors, with the help of partners like the Harris County Area Agency on Aging. In conjunction with the Harris County Community Services Department, IM is able to reach out to the remote areas of Harris County, serving seniors across the county.

Additionally, the aniMeals on Wheels program was founded so that home-bound seniors on Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston's Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston program would not feel compelled to share their limited food and resources with their four-legged friends. IM collects donated pet food that volunteers deliver each month to seniors. Learn more about aniMeals on Wheels.

Meet Meals on Wheels Seniors

Mario and Patsy Piña are Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston clients who just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. “I liked her the first time I set eyes on her and I couldn’t let her get away,” said Mario. The couple keeps their love alive by sharing laughter and joking with one another. Things took a turn for the couple earlier this year, when Patsy got sick and was hospitalized for three months. “We signed up for IM’s Meals on Wheels when my wife came home from the hospital,” he said. “This is the first time we’ve had to ask for help like this and these meals have been a god-send. I don’t see very well anymore and it’s hard for me to take over the duties of cooking. If it wasn’t for Meals on Wheels, we wouldn’t have a wonderful, hot meal to eat every day.”
