Lions Club Delivers Meals To Lakeway Area Residents

Meals on Wheels is a large nonprofit group that assists those in need in the Austin area by delivering food to home-bound residents.  The group’s efforts are so popular, and they don’t have the data to support the need in Lakeway,

that they are currently not able to service the Lakeway area.

Consequently, several Lakeway area churches have been talking about the need for a program to assist those with short or long-term needs who need to have their meals delivered.  The Lions Club stepped up and made the program happen! The meals are donated by local Lakeway restaurants at no cost and the meals are delivered to the recipients who receive the meals for free by volunteers three days a week.  Donations are accepted from the recipient if they are willing and able to contribute and those donations go back into the Mobile

Meals program. While I was delivering the meals I noticed that the recipients were kind and thankful and I was happy just to help for one hour to make their lives more comfortable.

Friday was the first of hopefully many days that I will assist in meal delivery in the Lakeway area.  During the delivery I learned more about the Lions Club and their other philanthropic programs.  I am planning on attending one of their monthly meetings soon.

If you or someone you know could use the assistance of home-delivered meals 3 days a week, please contact Lion Member-Linda Davis at 512-799-2924.
