Q: My mother doesn't live in Dallas County. Can you connect me with the Meals on Wheels where she lives?
Yes. You can view the list of Meals on Wheels providers listed at the bottom of our Get Assistance page or contact VNA at (214) 689-2268 or email@example.com for assistance connecting with other home delivered meals programs in North Texas. For other areas, you can search for your local program by zip code through the Meals on Wheels Association of America at www.mowaa.org.
Due to funding regulations, VNA cannot accept donated food. We can accept other in-kind donations to support our clients' quality of life, including box fans, blankets, and space heaters.
VNA delivers on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day mornings and is closed only a few days during the year - New Year's Day, Volunteer Appreciation Event Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Day after Thanksgiving. A shelf stable meal is sent to all clients a few days before each of these holidays so they will have something for lunch on those days. Learn more...
Q: I want to volunteer but can't commit to delivering meals every week. Can I deliver a few times a year?
Yes. Meals are delivered Monday through Fridays in the late morning hours throughout Dallas County. Some volunteers only deliver once a month, while others deliver occasionally as substitutes. You can sign up to deliver as often as your schedule permits. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or click here.
