East Pasco Meals on Wheels is a community charity that depends on local donations, contributions from area businesses and small grants to fulfill its mission to prevent malnutrition or hunger.

Volunteers assist in prepping fresh produce, packaging home cooked meals and delivering them to shut-ins or those who need assistance with well-balanced meals.

Meals on Wheels does not provide frozen, packaged meals and does not have minimum income requirements. Participants will pay $25 per week to receive food for the entire week.

“Our mission is provide healthy and nutritious meals with an abundance of vegetables, salads and fresh fruit,” said Beth Aker Executive Director.  “We deliver to residents from San Antonio to Crystal Springs and our volunteers brighten the lives of those we serve.”

If you know someone that is unable to get to the store and could use this valuable nutritional program, or, if you are interested in volunteering with Meals on Wheels, contact East Pasco Meals on Wheels by calling 813-782-7859.
