Delivers Meals on Wheels in 2012

Hunger: A gnawing feeling in the stomach. Dizziness. Light-headedness. Headaches. Lethargy or weakness. Inability to concentrate. A craving for food. Pain.

Help fight hunger in Houston by participating in St. John’s Meals on Wheels program. According to research by Dr. Eugene Smolensky, economist and Professor of Public Policy, nearly six million seniors face the threat of hunger each day. Texas in particular has astoundingly high rates of food insecurities for seniors and came in fourth highest in the nation for senior hunger.

In January St. John’s Outreach Committee will be scheduling the 2012 rooster for delivering meals to local elderly people who need food. St. John’s delivers on the first Saturday and the second Sunday of each month. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Phyllis Freeman at 713-776-3548.
