Our Mission

Mission and Philosophy

GIMOW reduces food insecurity and social isolation by delivering nutritious meals to Island residents who are homebound and cannot prepare their own meals due to illness, disability, or age.

Primary Objectives

There are three primary objectives of the Galveston Island Meals on Wheels Program:

1. To provide well-balanced, nutritious meals to Galveston citizens who have difficulty preparing or securing meals on their own.

2. To provide companionship through daily visits from volunteers.

3. To provide interested citizens an opportunity to work with and minister to the homebound.

An additional benefit of the Meals on Wheels program is that it enables many senior or infirm adults to remain in their homes or to return to their homes more quickly following discharge from a hospital or other care facility.

Basic Principles

A major philosophy behind GIMOW is a commitment to keep the program deeply rooted in the Galveston community. With this in mind, two basic principles guide its operations:

1. We receive no funding from any government entity. Qualified recipients are asked to contribute toward the cost of meals, but no one is denied meals due to inability to contribute.

2. Volunteers from within the community are recruited to deliver meals, and community gifts are solicited to support the cost of the meals.
