Southlake Cares: Metroport Meals on Wheels

Neighbors Helping Neighbors to alleviate hunger, isolation and loneliness in our communities, and to foster the independence, worth and dignity of each individual they serve.

For 21 years, the City of Southlake and Metroport Meals on Wheels have joined forces to support area seniors by providing hot lunches and a friendly face to those in need.

Now, with many senior-related resources closed due to COVID-19 concerns, MMOW needs our help.

How You Can Help

Currently, in addition to their ongoing home delivery mail program, MMOW is providing a Weekly Curbside Meal program on Mondays at the Southlake Senior Activity Center. There is a $4 charge for meals, but MMOW never turns away a person in need because of an inability to pay.

“We are serving about 100 seniors each week in Southlake with this program,” Southlake Senior Services Coordinator Soheila Phelps said.

To keep going, MMOW needs monetary donations and items on their ongoing Amazon Wish List, which are critical to their operation. MMOW also needs volunteers to help prepare and distribute meals. You can learn more about volunteering for MMOW on their website.

Double Your Donation

The Carl C. Anderson Sr. and Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation has provided a $20,000 Challenge Grant to assist with MMOW’s home-delivered meals that are urgently needed. Every dollar you give now will be DOUBLED (up to $20,000 total), providing TWICE as many lifesaving meals for the hungry seniors and medically fragile neighbors we serve together.
