Interfaith Ministries Seeks Volunteers for Meals On Wheels


HOUSTON: Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston is in need of volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels meals to homebound seniors in Houston. The program currently needs volunteers to help make deliveries in Houston’s Midtown area. Volunteers can deliver with a family member, colleague, or by themselves.

 “Volunteers play a vital role in our Meals on Wheels operation,” said Warren Wenner, Director of Senior Services at Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston. “Volunteers help keep costs low so that we are able to continue to serve more than 4,000 seniors throughout the city each day. We appreciate those who take the time out of their busy schedules to help elderly in need.”

The delivery takes only one hour and volunteers can choose the frequency of the time commitment.  Deliveries take place weekdays from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  The meals are picked up from the W.T & Louise J. Moran Meals on Wheels Building in Midtown and then volunteers deliver to senior homes in the nearby area.

“Volunteers not only bring a nutritious meal to the seniors, but also a friendly smile,” said Karina Hernandez, Manager of Volunteer Services for Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston.”Some of our seniors live alone and the driver may be the only person they see on a given day.  Volunteers provide an important wellness check to these isolated seniors. Our volunteers tell us visiting seniors is fun and very rewarding.”

Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston’s Meals on Wheels program delivers more than 4,000 meals to homebound seniors throughout Harris County every weekday.  The program also delivers breakfast and weekend meals to seniors who are most frail and needy.

Volunteers can find out more information and register at or by contacting Karina Hernandez at (713) 533-4948.
