Meals on Wheels

We Are On A Mission To Thrive and Serve

20% of all seniors in Texas are at risk of hunger, the sixth highest rate of senior hunger in the nation.

YWCA Houston serves on average 300,000 meals to venerable home bounds seniors in Houston and surrounding areas, making us the second largest provider of Home Delivered Meals in the city of Houston and the largest provider of Congregate Meals.

Our Meals on Wheels program provides meals to seniors that are over the age of 60.

Through collaboration with the Houston/Harris County Area Agency on Aging and Harris County Community Service Department we provide more than 2000 seniors with a hot nutritionally balanced meal, Monday through Friday (except approved holidays). The YWCA Houston nutritional programs allow the seniors the opportunity to remain independent in their homes and interact with their peers.
