Who pays for the meals?
Federal and State governments fund a portion of our costs through the Older Americans Act,
USDA, and the Texas Agriculture Department's Texans Feeding Texans program.
The remaining meal cost is funded through local donors,
foundation grants, corporate donors, churches, and client contributions.
Clients are encouraged to contribute towards the cost of their meals, but no one
is required to contribute, and no one is denied services based upon inability to contribute.
We encourage them to give as they are able.
Our desire is to lessen our dependence on Federal dollars and increase community giving.
