Community Support: Meals on Wheels Central Texas

Attention, community-minded members! Each year, our member-owners select organizations for the Co-op to support. This November, we’ll support Meals on Wheels Central Texas. Meals on Wheels Central Texas supports homebound adults and people with disabilities through programs that promote independent living. Some of these programs include meal delivery, grocery shopping assistance, in-home care, home repair, and pet care. They currently provide services to nearly 5,000 people in the Austin community. 

To support Meals on Wheels Central Texas, we’re collecting in-kind donations through Thanksgiving. They’re currently seeking:

  • Toiletries
  • Meal replacement drinks like Ensure
  • Household items like laundry detergent and cleaning supplies
  • Gift cards to HEB, Walmart, or Target ($20 increments)
  • Microwaves
  • Pet food, cat litter, or gently used pet supplies for pets

As a thank you for your contribution to this donation drive, the Co-op would like to buy you a Rational pint of house beer. Please bring in your donation by Sunday, November 27th. 

If you’re interested in volunteering with Meals on Wheels and More, you can find out more on the Volunteer page of their website. Thank you for helping the Co-op support community organizations.
