AoA Choices… What a Nutrition Program Can Do!

Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County (MOWI) has been offering a choice of lunch entrees for five years. Beginning March 2007 MOWI began to test market a Choice Meal Program. Due to overwhelming positive response from the test market participants, the choice meal program went countywide on June 18, 2007 and is a permanent part of a multitude of services that they provide their clients.

This Powerpoint presentation outlines the MOWI Choice Meal Program.
