In 1972, FUMCFW and ten other downtown faith-based organizations met to address hunger in the central city and formed the Association of Central City Ministries (ACCM). From this, Meals On Wheels of Tarrant County was launched to provide meals to the elderly solely with volunteer help.
Meals on Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County now has a volunteer force of over 5,000 who deliver meals, as well as blankets, fans, supplemental groceries, medical equipment, pet food, and other essential items to nearly 4,600 people in neighborhoods throughout Tarrant County.
Since 1975 the United Methodist Women (UMW) Chapter of FUMCFW has delivered meals and more importantly concern, love, and compassion to elderly and disabled homebound residents. Recently Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County awarded UMW a plaque honoring their forty years of service and placed a brick in their honor on the pathway leading to the entrance of the new Meals on Wheels facility.
A heartfelt thank you to all the ladies of UMW for the generous gift of time they give and the difference it makes in the lives of those they serve.
