Meals on Wheels San Antonio meal-delivery volunteers noticed that our clients were sharing their meals with their pets. After realizing that, like their owners, the pets of many Meals on Wheels of San Antonio recipients were in need of nutritious food, we launched "AniMeals", the program to provide pet food to nourish the pets of seniors. AniMeals is a donation-sustained service which provides monthly deliveries of pet food to clients who find it hard to maintain the nutrition of their companion animals. These meals are delivered by animal-loving volunteers every third weekend of the month.If you or your organization is interested in distributing pet food to local seniors, please call 210.735.5115 or email us today!

Meals will be delivered Monday–Thursday. Routes will continue being picked up from 10:00 am - 11 am from our headquarters at 4306 NW Loop 410, 78229. We will not deliver meals on Fridays as we work to minimize interactions for everyone's safety.
For the safety of our clients, all volunteers will have their temperatures checked. Anyone reading 99.5 or higher will be unable to deliver. Routes will be handed out at random, which means we will not be able to guarantee that you will get your regular routes to deliver. If you are unable to deliver or are uncomfortable delivering a route that is not yours, we understand! We also recommend that any volunteer who is 60 or older or has an underlying condition consider staying home.
If you are interested in volunteering during this time please contact Casey Parker via email (<-- click here) or call 210.735.5115.
As you may be aware, we are working to incorporate CDC practices of Social Distancing into everything we are doing, including meal pick-up and delivery.

Healthy children learn more, and our outside children's learning spaces are in need of volunteers. With the Child Development Center closed, we offer safe social distancing on our grounds at 1135 Mission Road (78210). We need simple landscaping assistance (mowing, picking up branches) at our center located just a few blocks from historic Mission Concepcion. (Our center that opened in 1926 is a World Heritage Site Buffer Zone!) We have several raised children's sensory learning gardens, where mobile infants and toddlers can experience the smells, sights, sounds and joy of outdoor learning. At the gardens, children learn how healthy foods grow. We have simple bird feeders and wind chimes. Check our Child Development Center page at blessedsacramentacademysa.org to watch our 'Gardening with a Toddler' videos. We need pruners, a bird bath and a Purple Martin House. Can you donate one or more?
