Meals on Wheels

If you are an at-risk older adult, Meals on Wheels may be able to deliver meals to your home.

You may qualify to receive free meals if:

  • you are an older adult living in Bexar, Frio, or Atascosa County
  • you are unable to make your own meals
  • you are unable to leave your home
  • you are unable to drive

On a limited basis, disabled individuals under 60 may be eligible for meals if funding is available.
