text about meals on wheels closure

Meals On Wheels of Tarrant County will be closed Thursday and Friday, February 3-4, 2022, due to inclement weather conditions across the county in order to ensure the safety of their volunteers and staff. Throughout the year, the agency delivers emergency shelf-stable meals to their clients to ensure they have the food they need until normal meal delivery can safely resume. All boxed meals are clearly marked for emergency use and contain a reminder to save the meal for bad weather days when the agency is closed. Meals On Wheels also delivered an additional shelf-stable meal last week, so a total of four shelf-stable meals have been delivered to each client since the last weather closing.


Meals On Wheels will continue to monitor the weather conditions to determine if additional closures will be necessary. If there is any accumulation of snow, sleet or ice, there will be no meal delivery. While major roads and freeways are usually cleared or treated for ice, most neighborhood streets remain very dangerous, not to mention issues with icy sidewalks and stairs. The agency will not put any of their volunteers or staff at risk of injury, so the safest course of action will be to close for the day.


Meals On Wheels would like to remind the general public to touch base with their neighbors prior to the upcoming winter storm, especially for those who live next to someone who is elderly, disabled or isolated. Offer yourself as a point of contact and ensure they have food, water and heat in their home. We make Tarrant County a great place when we work together as a community to care for one another.

As always, if you are experiencing an emergency call 911 for help.
