Last week, while I was in Fort Worth awarding home-delivered meal agencies across North Texas more than $2 million to help feed hungry, homebound Texans, I met Reverend Floyd Kinser.
Rev. Kinser was the pastor of one of 11 churches that helped establish Meals on Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County. This group of churches literally did it all when the home-delivered meal agency opened – they cooked food, answered phones and delivered meals.
Having volunteered 37 years with the agency, Rev. Kinser is the longest-serving volunteer, both as a board member and as a volunteer driver. He opens every board meeting with a prayer, and staff says his faith helps the home-delivered meal program succeed. Although now in his 80s, Rev. Kinser still delivers meals once a week. Thanks, Rev. Kinser, for your vision that is still positively influencing the lives of Texans today.
