National Council of Jewish Women invites community members to join NCJW’s April 21 meeting from noon to 1 p.m. The meeting will be held virtually and will feature a discussion of the importance, especially during these challenging times, of Meals On Wheels Central Texas. 

Guest speakers will be Adam Hauser, MOWCTX president and CEO, and Seanna Marceaux, MOWCTX vice president for nutrition, health and impact. Visit ncjwaustin.org for registration info.

MOWCTX seeks to nourish and enrich the lives of the homebound and other people in need through programs that promote dignity and independent living. MOWCTX is one of the largest meal-delivery organizations in the state, distributing 3,000 meals each business day to homebound older adults and people with disabilities. 

Part of the Austin area community since 1972, MOWCTX believes in holistic case management and also offers the following services to clients through the organization’s many programs: in-home care; minor and major home repairs; grocery shopping assistance; a monthly supply of shelf-stable groceries; extra, daily, shelf-stable meals for the nutritionally at-risk; veteran services; problem-solving therapies; rural meal delivery; Alzheimer’s respite care; and pet food and pet health care for clients’ dogs and cats.

Programs are provided free of charge and are designed to nourish and enrich the lives of the people MOWCTX serves, allowing clients to live at home with dignity and independence.
