Meals on Wheels for Wimberley Seniors


The Nutrition Program in Wimberley, commonly called Meals on Wheels, provides delivery to homebound seniors sixty years of age and older. This program has no income guidelines. Any senior who cannot leave home without assistance may be eligible. Meals are delivered by volunteers on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week.

The program in Wimberley was started more than ten years ago by Jo Quesenberry (see her in the middle of the photo on the right) who saw a need. She came up with a solution to help those who prefer to remain in their own homes but who may require assistance in maintaining a healthy diet. Founder and volunteers of Meals on Wheels in Wimberley, Texas

And...
home delivery of hot, well-balanced meals is not all that this program offers...

Special occasions are honored for Wimberley residents Congregate meals served in group settings are enjoyed by many at the Senior Citizens center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, beginning around 11:30. Those interested in group service are asked to sign up and make reservations at least 24 hours before, please, to aid in planning.

Seniors are encouraged to make a suggested donation of $1.50 per meal. If they cannot make a donation as suggested, they may give what they can afford. If a person cannot give a contribution, they will not be denied a meal.

The Nutrition Program is made possible by over 36 volunteers. Through home deliveries, these volunteers have been more than a delivery service. (Take the time, for  instance, when one perceptive helper delivering a meal smelled leaking gas in time to save a citizen and her home.) Wimberley's Meals on Wheels is made possible by volunteers
