Meals on Wheels provides home delivery lunch to residents of Bexar County who are:
- 60 years of age or older
- Unable to travel to a senior nutrition center for lunch
- Unable to prepare a meal for themselves or have anyone in the home to prepare a meal for them.
The goal of CSS is to provide a well balanced, hot meal to the homebound elderly of Bexar County. There is no charge for eligible clients; however, a small donation is suggested. All donations go back into the program to provide more meals for more seniors. Nutritious food is essential to everyone; therefore income is not a criterion for service.
The Meals on Wheels program welcomes volunteer drivers for the St. Mark route. Substitute drivers may volunteer to help Meals on Wheels deliver a hot lunch and a warm smile to our homebound elderly. Meal delivery normally takes about an hour, between the hours of 10:30 am and 1:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Volunteers should call Marsha Wiltz at 210-735-5115. Volunteers must have a current drivers license and proof of automobile insurance. Orientation takes place every Wednesday from 12:00 to 1:00 pm at Christian Senior Services, 4306 NW Loop 410, San Antonio, 78229.
Potential clients may call in to the Outreach Office of Christian Senior Services (735-5115) to make application for the program. Clients may also be referred by family, friends, doctors, and community service agencies. The St. Mark coordinators for Meals on Wheels are Kit and Rich Miller at 494-6323.
