Our History

Our mission is to combat hunger and isolation in disabled and older adults by providing nutritious meals enabling them to remain healthy and independent within their families, homes, and communities.

The first senior nutrition program began in 1976 with the opening of three senior centers in Farmersville, McKinney and Plano. A total of one hundred meals were served daily at the three centers. Other senior centers were added through the years and home delivered meals began to be served throughout the county.

Today with the threat of one in six seniors facing hunger and isolation, approximately 950 meals are delivered daily to homes and congregate sites throughout Collin County.

Meals deliveries to the homes of the elderly would not be possible without involvement of volunteer citizens in our communities. It takes the dedication of hundreds of community volunteers to make daily personal home deliveries possible.

Donate to a specific project need, for example to “ 20 euros for a wheelbarrow ”, or else to a project generally e.g. “Building a school in Mombasa, Kenya”. You can always donate anonymously. Rather than a one-off donation, you can become a monthly donor. Also a possibility with many projects: donations in kind or donating your time as a volunteer.

Rate it if you happen to know the project manager or if you know more about the project for some other reason. Post your opinion on the project-site, ideally including photos or videos from when you visited the project on-site. You can also ask the project manager questions at any time. Others can use their answers to help them decide whether to donate.
