Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, established in 1974, is committed to helping seniors remain independent by enhancing their quality of life through services and resources through its various programs, including home-delivered meals, emergency shelf-stable meals and congregate meals.

Emergency shelf-stable meals are meals with a shelf life of one year that are delivered to seniors for use when home delivery is unavailable due to emergency weather conditions. Congregate meals are served at all 12 of Fort Bend Seniors' senior centers, which are located throughout Fort Bend and Waller counties and along the Harris and Fort Bend County boundaries.
