Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels is beginning to reopen its congregate centers after more than a yearlong closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The nonprofit, which serves senior citizens age 60 and older in Fort Bend and Waller counties, announced its plans to reopen eight centers in a press release June 16.

Fort Bend Seniors' congregate centers offer a range of activities, including bingo, art and fitness classes, and provide much-needed socialization and a hot meal to participants.

The Bud O'Shieles Community Center, located at 1330 Band Road, Rosenburg, was the first center to reopen June 7, followed by a new location at the Landmark Community Center at 100 Louisiana St., Missouri City, on June 21.

The organization has a plan to open additional congregate centers in July and August, according to the following schedule.

  • June 28: Kendleton Church of God, 619 FM 2919, Beasley; The Huntington at Sienna, 4522 Trammel Fresno Road, Missouri City; and Fort Bend Family YMCA, 4433 Cartwright Road, Missouri City

  • early July: Brookshire United Way Service Center, 531 Hwy. 359 S., Brookshire

  • early August: Four Corners Recreation Center, 15700 Old Richmond Road, Sugar Land

In the press release, Fort Bend Seniors said it will continue to provide contactless, home-delivered meals to program participants until all locations have reopened.

Additionally, the organization will follow health recommendations to keep seniors, staff and volunteers safe. 281-633-7049.
