50 Years of Delivering Hope

Too many of our aging neighbors spend their days home and alone. Added to this isolation is the growing worry of choosing between food and heating the home. Thankfully, there’s something we know brings hope and joy for homebound seniors—Meals on Wheels.

Since 1973, the Visiting Nurse Association of Texas (VNA) Meals on Wheels has been delivering food, friendship and a safety check to homebound seniors and disabled adults in Dallas County.

What began as 125 meals in 1973, has grown to feed 4,500 clients each weekday. The volunteers and staff who deliver freshly prepared, hot meals not only provide much-needed nutrition, but also serve as a lifeline for isolated seniors.

Through the past 50 years, we’ve experienced the lifesaving power of Meals on Wheels. From the volunteers finding clients who have fallen and called for help, to our advocacy of other services like utility assistance and nurse visits to help people safely age in place—VNA has done all of this and more.

As we begin a year of celebrating 50 years of VNA Meals on Wheels, we want to thank YOU—our dedicated donors and volunteers—who make this daily miracle happen and who ensure we can continue to deliver hope for the next 50 years.

Thank you for helping us fulfill our mission to help people age with dignity and independence at home.
