Officials representing Lubbock Meals On Wheels want to assure the community that they are open for business.
Although some smaller Meals On Wheels programs have been affected by changes in government funding requirements, these cuts will not affect operations in Lubbock.
Lubbock Meals On Wheels relies on donations and local fundraisers for support.
The Meals On Wheels program in Bailey County recently decided to stop accepting money from the South Plains Association of Governments after federal regulations imposed strict new menu requirements.
But here in Lubbock, Meals On Wheels doesn't use those government grants
Lorrie Bellair, Executive Director of Lubbock Meals On Wheels said, "We are completely reliant on generous donations from the community and fundraisers."
With the Christmas season starting, Meals On Wheels is preparing for the busiest month of the year.
