I am privileged to sit on the Board of Directors for Interfaith Ministries, which administers Meals On Wheels for the greater Houston area. What an awesome and committed group of people.

Bringing a hot meal to the front door of the rapidly growing senior population in the Houston area is important work. MoW provides home-delivered meals to over 7,300 unduplicated homebound seniors and adults with disabilities in five counties – Harris, Galveston, Montgomery, Liberty and Chambers. This nutritional support helps people stay independent and in their own homes. Sign up: 713-533-4978.
