Jackie Hamm, CEO
I truly understand the quote, "choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life," because for me, serving The Kitchen isn’t a job, it’s my passion.
Welcome to The Kitchen family! Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to help support a growing concern in our community…senior hunger.
A recent report documents the growing problem of senior hunger in America, and Texas figures prominently in it. Texas ranks #6 in the percent of seniors facing the threat of hunger in the U.S.
The report, titled “The State of Senior Hunger in America 2012: An Annual Report,” was prepared by respected economists Dr. James P. Ziliak and Dr. Craig Gunderson for The Meals on Wheels Research Foundation. The study, which is based on 2012 data (the latest year for which data is available), found 9.3 million seniors face the threat of hunger nationally, and the problem is growing.
In Wichita Falls, The Kitchen struggles to keep up with the growing demand for Meals on Wheels. Our staff prepares approximately 1700 meals every day. We could not accomplish this without YOUR help.
Again, THANK YOU for your support of Meals on Wheels in Wichita Falls.
