Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa is getting a new home to help deal with a growing local need for their services.

President and CEO Calvin Moore said the nonprofit has been forced to remain artificially small because of the constraints of their current 6,000-square foot facility at 31st Street and Garnett Road, where they’ve been for nearly four decades.

Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa has an urgent need for additional volunteers to help deliver meals and friendly contact to homebound elderly and disabled people in the North and East areas of Tulsa. 

There is a critical shortage of volunteer driver/deliverers, food packers, and site coordinators.  Already, a waiting list has been instituted for parts of North Tulsa.
