Home-Delivered Meals In Abilene Since 1975


Betty L. Bradley
Executive Director since July 1, 1975

Currently a team of 900+ wonderful volunteers is involved in delivery of some 1,250 daily meals.

While many Meals on Wheels recipients are age 60 or older, the program is also available for younger adults who have disabilities. Many of those we serve have few visitors other than the Meals on Wheels drivers.
