The Moody Foundation has awarded Galveston Island Meals on Wheels a $78,250 grant for expansion of services throughout Galveston Island.

We serve lunchtime meals weekdays to homebound elderly and disabled Galveston residents residing east of 81st Street.

The grant will play an instrumental part in our growth, allowing us to update technology and communications in order to expand both the number of meals delivered and the territory served. The grant also will underwrite the cost of meals for many new recipients who are unable to afford this critical service.

As of Nov. 30, we served 201 homebound elderly and disabled Galveston residents, of which 97.5 percent are unable to pay the full cost of their meals.

Our mission is to deliver noontime meals to homebound individuals in the city of Galveston who cannot adequately prepare their own meals because of illness, disability or age. All meals are delivered by a dedicated team of volunteers, and we don't accept any government funds. We're a tax-exempt nonprofit organization.
