Thursday, May 4th, Meals on Wheels Collin County opened it’s doors to the public for an educational and hands on process that took individuals on a journey of what it’s like to be a senior citizen facing hunger and isolation.

Each department had stations for visitors to learn what it takes to become a client and how Meals on Wheels Collin County delivers hot nutritious meals to the senior population. Client Services boasted the hands-on experience of how our Case Managers thoroughly execute the referral process. Fundraising and Development shared facts on the Meals on Wheels funding break down, which helped to clarify exactly how much our funding could be affected by the proposed cuts to the Community Development Block Grant. The heart of the establishment, the kitchen, provided a comforting meal of chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and rolls with a breakdown explaining the nutrients found in each meal. We also had volunteer stations set up so that potential volunteers may learn details behind meal delivery and sign up to sponsor a delivery route.

MOWCC would like to thank the Collin County public for the large turnout of supporters; we could not achieve our daily goals without you!
