Meals on Wheels


BSBAC delivers Meals on Wheels Monday through Friday to various parts of Western Comal County. Frozen meals can also be delivered for the weekend or holidays. Our home delivered meal program provides hot and nutritious meals for anyone who is homebound and qualifies for our program.

For more than 50 years, Meals on Wheels has supported our nation’s seniors through a network of local community-based programs. These providers serve as a lifeline to those struggling with food insecurity, nutrition challenges, mobility, loneliness and countless other difficulties of aging. Meals on Wheels service begins with the meal and enables local programs to deliver so much more. The delivery of a nutritious meal creates the opportunity to build a relationship with the individual senior, opening the door for Meals on Wheels providers to identify and deliver valuable services that promote independence and well-being.

Each day we hear anecdotes of how Meals on Wheels has touched people’s lives. And, for every positive story there’s an opportunity to apply real numbers to the impact Meals on Wheels has on those who benefit from services. In The Case for Meals on Wheels: An Evidence-Based Solution to Senior Hunger and Isolation, we looked at 38 studies conducted between 1996 and 2023, and from them we can draw strong associations between receiving Meals on Wheels and experiencing positive health and well-being outcomes.


Thank you to Meals on Wheels Loves Pets, Meals on Wheels Americaand PetSmart Charities for awarding BSBAC with a grant for our Pets on Wheels program. With their help, we have been able to provide our clients with pet food, pet medicine, vet visits, etc. Below are a few of our members that have benefited from the grant.


Ralph is a young 96-year-old living in Spring Branch, TX. He is originally from Muscogee, Oklahoma but currently lives in Spring Branch. Ralph went on the Meals on Wheels program about five years ago, and apart from the meals and the friendly faces, he appreciates the food and care that he gets for his cat, Treasure.

Treasure walked onto the property a few years ago and has been part of the family ever since. As Ralph states it, you “can’t help but to love the little thing”. Being able to receive vet services and food through the Meals on Wheels Loves Pets Grant is very important to Ralph, especially since he doesn’t drive. He is especially grateful for the time Treasure was injured and was able to receive treatment.

In addition to spending time with his beloved Treasure and his girlfriend, he enjoys visits with his two children, 3 grandchildren and the many great-grandchildren. A WWII and Korea Veteran, Ralph supports his local Veterans of Foreign Affairs (VFW). He is also interested in NASA Engineering and used to work for NASA & General Dynamics Astronautics.

Ralph and Treasure thank Meals on Wheels Loves Pets for their support!


My name is T.C. 15 years ago, my husband and I rescued a very precious little female puppy, Shelby. She claimed me from the very first moment and filled my heart with joy from that day on! A few years ago, I lost my dear husband, and Shelby was my primary companion. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She was with me during all those painful times of grieving and really saved me. Sadly, as she approached her senior years, health issues began to emerge. It was during this time that I began receiving food from Meals on Wheels.

One day, I had been crying just before Joan (the MOW volunteer) had arrived. She kindly asked if I was ok, and after I shared information about my precious Shelby’s deteriorating health, Joan told me about their Pets on Wheels program. I was just elated!! When she told me that I could receive help with the cost, as well as help facilitating the care, I just couldn’t believe it!! A tremendous weight had been lifted from my shoulders. The POW program, and Joan, helped me to get Shelby to the Vet, get examined, and receive medication and vitamins to help her recover.

Unfortunately, as she was up in years, her slight improvement was only temporary. She started to decline. When the time came to prevent any increase in discomfort or suffering, POW also helped us with that final trip to the Vet and took care of the final expenses. Tears come to my eyes as I write this, because it’s like re-living that very sad day that just broke my heart. It’s been 7 months since then, and I deeply miss my precious little girl, and her joyful personality. Thankfully, I have many photos and videos to remember her by, and thankfully still have my cat Rascal for company. POW has also helped Rascal get the care he needed, and his overall health has improved!

I’m very grateful for all the help I’ve received from Meals on Wheels, and the Pets on Wheels program! I don’t know what I would have ever done without them. I hope that this program will continue to be funded, as it makes a night and day difference to those who receive the assistance. I personally know that the situation with my pets would have been extremely more painful and difficult without it. Thank you, Meals on Wheels and Pets on Wheels!!


My name is Mike; I am 68 years old and live in Bulverde, Texas. I found some abandoned cats 16 years ago in my church parking lot. I decided to take them in, and the best part of having them has been their companionship. Pets on Wheels is such an important service and helps so many people. They have personally helped me with vet services for my cats including shots, medications, and other things they’ve needed. These services have saved both of my two cats from sickness. I originally started with two cats, Love and Moses, but now have five additional cats; Patches, Menny, Dust Ball, Butane and Malichi. Thank you to the Bulverde Activity Center and Pets on Wheels for helping me to provide for my cats and keeping them healthy.


My name is Dana and I am 84 years old. I’ve lived in San Antonio, San Angelo, and McAllen. In June 1976, my family moved to Pleasant Valley in Kendall County. My small breed dog, Taco, came from Canyon Lake Animal Shelter on 12/17/15. I also have a mama cat, Lovey, that appeared for breakfast one morning in September of 2021. I have since adopted her and her three kittens, Cricket, Calico and Spot. My three year old cat disappeared the day before Lovey and her kittens showed up at my door. It was perfect timing. They have all become a part of my family.

I can’t imagine not having my dog and cats. They know their names and I talk to them all the time. They are such an important part of my life and keep me company. The Pets on Wheels grant has helped me care for my pets and helped to get them fixed. Thank you for all your help and all you do.
