Do you know Meals on Wheels?  Each weekday, more than 4,000 hot lunches are cooked and delivered to homebound seniors and disabled persons throughout Dallas County.  Volunteers do the delivering.  It is a great volunteer opportunity for Realtors, especially, since they are chained to a car. Meals on Wheels is a project of the Visiting Nurses Association, and Peggy Millheiser happens to be on the board  of VNA/Meals on Wheels. The VNA started the very first hospice program in Dallas, and continues the work today.  They also offer private care and companionship.

Meals on Wheels is raising funds by selling Thanksgiving Day pies, really yummy ones. If you have not had the pleasure of volunteering to drive Meals on Wheels, I have and it is SO rewarding! One year my son came with me when he was home from college. I recall one time we met a man who was heating his home with the burners on his stove, and we notified the office who sent out help stat.

This year, VNA Meals on Wheels organized Power of Pie. Many high profile local bakers– The Joule Hotel, Four Seasons, Anatole, Spoon, and Empire Baking Company are a just a few—have agreed to donate pumpkin and pecan pies. You can buy one for just $25, which is the cost to feed one senior for a week.

The pies will be available the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day (November 27), and you can pick them up at distribution centers all over the area. Here are the pickup locations. Saint Michaels on Douglas is one location.

What’s Thanksgiving without pumpkin AND pecan pie. And here is a great way to serve a delicious, home made dessert, while feeding others who are home-bound and quite possibly all alone for the holiday.


I’m going to order a couple, and then my husband can take them to Labor and Delivery and feed all the new dads the day after Thanksgiving!

Thanks, Peggy, for doing this and helping so many people in Dallas.
