Over 1 Million Meals Delivered
In June of 2021, Capital Metro celebrated delivering one million meals to community members. In partnership with the Central Texas Food Bank, H-E-B, Any Baby Can, Good Apple Co, Welcome Table Operations and Hope Food Pantry, our MetroAccess team began the meal delivery program during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure Central Texas residents were able to safely receive food and supplies.
MetroAccess service provides transportation for clients whose disabilities or medical conditions prevent them from using public transit. Many of them are in fragile health, and it's important they are able to stay at home to protect their health and safety, and not worry about how they will get basic necessities.
This partnership with H-E-B and the Central Texas Food Bank provided Help-at-Home Kits to our MetroAccess clients free of charge. The kits included shelf-stable items delivered to a customer's doorstep using our MetroAccess vehicles.
