Many of our clients find that the daily, lunchtime meal we deliver fills their basic, nutritional needs. But others have no other reliable sources of food, and so they often must suffer the pangs of hunger between daily deliveries and over the long weekend days. In 2016, members of our Board of Directors decided that this was an issue we must address, and Sunrise Seniors Servings was born.
Through this program, we are able to provide a weekly delivery of shelf-stable breakfast foods to our most vulnerable clients. Initial funding for Sunrise Senior Servings was provided by The Women’s Fund of Smith County, and this program is currently funded entirely by private support.
Sunrise Senior Servings is currently in its pilot phase, and we are serving clients living in Smith County. We will expand to our other service areas as resources become available, and any Meals on Wheels client can receive breakfast, If you are a client and would like to find out how you could benefit from Sunrise Senior Servings, please call Meals on Wheels Ministry at (903) 593-7385.
