Nutrition & Services is concerned about what a significant outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Jefferson and Hardin counties could mean for the vulnerable seniors we serve. We are closely monitoring information and resources being shared by the experts in disease control and are putting prevention and response plans into place. We follow health officials’ recommended steps to protect against coronavirus similarly to how we prevent the spread of other illnesses. Staff and volunteers are trained appropriately.
We know the critical importance of preparation in times like this and understand the delicate balance between panic and preparedness. While we do not anticipate a disruption in service at this time, we have shelf stable meals packaged and ready to deliver to clients as needed.
Our senior clients and the volunteers that serve them remain our utmost concern. It is our hope that healthcare professionals will find a way to end this epidemic, but in the meantime, we hope everyone will follow these precautions to stop the spread of this or any illnesses. For additional information or to donate to our Meals on Wheels program contact us at 409-892-4455 or visit our website at seniormeals.org.

On August 17th a group of Valero First Responders, Operators, Electricians, Chemists, and Engineers surprised one of our Meals on Wheels Clients and tackled both her yard that needed attention and some Housekeeping inside her home. She has been living in her home as it is still being repaired from Harvey. Several of the folks who volunteered worked the night shift and came straight out to help from work. Ms. Mary was crying tears of joy when she saw what was going on at her home - she said that God brought them to her and she gave them all little Bibles when they left. Thank you to Valero for going above and beyond to assure our homebound neighbors are able to continue living independently at home, but not alone!
We were happy for the opportunity to have Congressman Randy Weber visit Nutrition and Services for Seniors on Monday, August 12th! During the August recess, Congressman Weber accepted an invitation by Meals on Wheels America to deliver meals in our region, visit constituents and witness firsthand the impact our services are making in the lives of our nation's seniors every day. This was a wonderful opportunity to educate more individuals about our program and services that help the elderly and disabled adults in our community remain living independently at home, but not alone.
