Meals on Wheels proudly announced their new six-acre, 44,000 square foot production and delivering facilities off of Nacogdoches Rd. outside Loop 410 at 2718 Danbury, and are asking for donations to help carry out the project to completion.
Meals on Wheels broke ground with giant forks and spoons at their press conference for the brand-new facility.
“We are really excited to have this new location with everything here,” said Ariana Barbour, Director of Communication and Marketing for Meals on Wheels.
Meals on Wheels has two other locations, one is Grace Place Alzheimer’s Activity Center, where they serve seniors with Alzheimer’s and the other is Grace Place and their kitchen, where they served seniors, on Babcock and 410 near the Medical Center. Both locations will be moved to its new facility once the project is complete.
Their new facility cannot be completed without your help. Meals on Wheels would like you to consider donating to their new campus, so that they can continue to help seniors in need of assistance. If you are interested in donating to Meals on Wheels’ new facility, please visit or
Donations for the new campus would allow the organization to double, even triple their capacity to produce enough food to serve more for people as well as extend help to more community partners.
“If we can produce it and they can help us deliver it, then we’re gonna do what we can to make sure nobody goes hungry,” said Barbour.
If you know a senior who needs a meal or if you want to volunteer, you can go to and fill out the online meal referral form. You can also call to speak to one of their care coordinators to set you up. The organization needs volunteers for meal delivery. There’s so many volunteer opportunities!
“The more people we have volunteering, the more we can serve, and we can reduce that time on our waiting list,” said Barbour.
