Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties
In 2012, the Joe Barton Family Foundation completed its $500,000 pledge in matching funds to the Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties in their $5 million capital campaign to build a regional kitchen facility to serve the elderly and disabled citizens of both counties.

This facility will initially provide nutritious meals to over 3000 people. The majority of these individuals are elderly citizens, averaging 85 years of age who live on an income of $12,000/year or less. Meals-on-Wheels expects to double the number of meals that are served in Johnson and Ellis Counties during the next 2 to 3 years. The new kitchen will significantly lower their transportation and production costs, allowing Meals-on-Wheels to feed more people in need.

The new building will be located in the TXI Railport Development in Midlothian, Texas. Construction is scheduled to be completed by December 2013. For more information, please visit: www.servingthechildrenofyesterday.org
