Meals On Wheels Volunteers Always Needed

January 2017 - THE Kitchen's Meals on Wheels program is always growing, serving between 850-900 clients on 58 routes in Wichita Falls every week day.  As of November 2016, we are now able to deliver to children with disabilities and their caregivers.  And, in March 2017, we will be delivering Meals on Wheels on the weekends too!  According to our surveys, 54% of our clients have been rationing food from their week day meals so they will not go hungry on Saturday and Sunday.  No more!  We are very excited to be able to fulfill our purpose, that no senior, disabled or home bound child or adult in our community goes hungry.
 
Each route takes routes can be delivered in less than an hour. Volunteers who deliver in pairs, with one driver and one runner, can be finished in as little as 30 minutes. You can even choose to deliver in your own neighborhood.
 
Our drive-thru system has cut down on volunteer pick-up time. Expect to wait no more than 5 minutes to receive your route sheet and have meals loaded into your vehicle. This extra convenience has helped to make becoming a Meals on Wheels volunteer easier than ever.

Meals can be picked up as early at 10:30 a.m. All routes must be delivered by 1:15.
 
If you are interested in becoming a Meals on Wheels volunteer, contact Lisa Williams, Volunteer Coordinator, at 940/322-6232 or fill out an application online at thekitchenwf.org. It will be the most fulfilling hour of your week.

Meet the Executive Director

Jackie Hamm, CEO

Jackie Hamm, CEO


I truly understand the quote, "choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life," because for me, serving The Kitchen isn’t a job, it’s my passion.

Welcome to The Kitchen family! Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to help support a growing concern in our community…senior hunger.

A recent report documents the growing problem of senior hunger in America, and Texas figures prominently in it. Texas ranks #6 in the percent of seniors facing the threat of hunger in the U.S.

The report, titled “The State of Senior Hunger in America 2012: An Annual Report,” was prepared by respected economists Dr. James P. Ziliak and Dr. Craig Gunderson for The Meals on Wheels Research Foundation. The study, which is based on 2012 data (the latest year for which data is available), found 9.3 million seniors face the threat of hunger nationally, and the problem is growing.

In Wichita Falls, The Kitchen struggles to keep up with the growing demand for Meals on Wheels.  Our staff prepares approximately 1700 meals every day. We could not accomplish this without YOUR help.

Again, THANK YOU for your support of Meals on Wheels in Wichita Falls.

Jackie Hamm

CEO
