Christmas at the Winery

The 2nd Annual Christmas at the Winery was even bigger and better than before.  This year, 14 vendors in the community provided an extravagant Christmas experience at the Horseshoe Bend Cellars Vineyard & Winery estate. The weather was beautiful and Santa was  happy to take photos with all who attended the event.  Proceeds from Christmas at the Winery went to THE Kitchen's Meals on Wheels program and P.E.T.S. Clinic.  Special thanks to our sponsors for the event: Fisher 59, The Ford House, Healing Hands Healthcare, Marcom, Mary Aranda Farmers Insurance, Schenk Schenk and Haines Attorneys at Law, Union Square Federal Credit Union, and United Supermarkets,

2019 Blanket and Sock Drive

The 2nd Annual Meals on Wheels Blanket and Sock Drive surpassed its goal, with donations of 502 blanets and 502 pairs of socks!  This year's event took place at Wal-Mart on Lawrence Road on December 3rd.  Hundreds of generous members of the community stopped to provide donations to our clients.  Thank you so much for helping us provide warmth to the seniors, disabled, and homebound in need.
Help to ensure seniors enjoy a complete, delicious, and nutritious meal every day without worrying about the dogs and cats they love.  

Years ago, we learned that an alarming number of our elderly and disabled clients were not eating all of their nutrious meal, but actually sharing it with their pets!  This is real problem for clients who live on a minimal income and desperately need the full nutritional benefits of our meals, not to mention the fact that our meals are not always helathy for the pets.  Clients who have difficulty adequately feeding their cat or dog may receive supplemental pet food at no charge through our AniMEALS Program.  The AniMEALS Program will launch July 25, 2019.  If you wish to make a donation to this program you can feed a pet for approximately $15.00 per month.  For more information about the AniMEALS Program, please contact Lisa Williams, Director of Special Programs, at (940)872-0356 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

On Wednesday August 7th, at 10:00am, kids of all ages are invited to share in a day of giving by delivering a Meals on Wheels route.  Meals on Wheels Kid's Community Champions Day is an opportunity for children to experience the joy of volunteerism and be a champion by helping to feed seniors, disabled, and the homebound within our community.  Applications can be found on this website by clicking the icon at the top of the page or participants can stop by THE Kitchen at 1000 Burnett and fill out a paper form.  Deadline to sign up is Friday, August 2nd, at 9:00pm.  Requirements to participate:  An adult age 18 or older is required to participate with the children.  An application must be filled out listing all of the children who wish to deliver together, as well as the adult participant.  Please contact Cindy Humphrey with further questions at This email address is being protected from spambots.

High Heels for Hot Meals 2019 was the most successful event yet, raising $65,000 for Meals on Wheels.  Almost 300 sponsors, donors, and supporters celebrated at The Forum on April 11th.  The Shoe Garden, displaying shoes creatively decorated by businesses in the community, brought in almost $10,000.  The winner of The Soe Garden, Frank Wilson with, was presented with a trophy and six tickets to see the Texas Rangers.  DJ Marcus livened up the crowd while they enjoyed the casino tables and dancing.  Two watches, donated by Holder's Jewelers, were given away at the end of the night for the signature drink raffle.  Winner of the casino ticket raffle received a Tangles package.  The live auction packages included a trip to Hawaii, trip to see The Voice in Los Angeles, trip to Ruidosa and stay at the Rainmaker resort with golfing, and a night time guided Hog Hunt, guided fishing tour, and CHL classes.  Four attendees donated a season of meals to Meals on Wheels.  THE Kitchen appreciates all of the sponsorship and donor support that has made it possible to provide 13,000 meals to our clients.
