FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Now that summer volunteers have gone back to school and work, Meals on Wheels Tarrant County has a shortage of meal-delivery volunteers.

On Monday, the organization put out a request for at least 10 volunteers to deliver noontime meals in the East Fort Worth area, including Meadowbrook, Stop Six, Woodhaven and Eastchase Pkwy.

The nonprofit said it takes just one hour, one day per week to deliver meals to approximately 8-10 homebound, elderly and disabled people.
