Mission: We are a community based, non-profit public-benefit organization, committed to enhancing wellness by providing quality nutritious meals, nutrition education, coordinating community resources and referrals for our homebound clients enabling them to maintain their independence and quality of life.Meals on Wheels helps our homebound neighbors by delivering two meals daily right to their doorstep. Meals that they are unable to shop for or prepare. Meals that many can’t otherwise afford. The daily visits of our volunteers reassure our homebound clients that we care, and the volunteers help us ensure the well-being of our clients, as well.

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 300 clients.
Geographic areas served: Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Topanga, Malibu, Marina Del Rey, Venice
Programs: home delivery of nutritious meals along with fresh produce, local newspaper and a caring smile to reduce hunger and isolation among homebound neighbors.
I have been supporting this program for over 30 years. They have done so much for so many people. I learned about this agency when my neighbor was receiving Meals on Wheels. She fell one day and it was only the immediate call by the volunteer that brought the help she needed. What a great program for those that are homebound and not able to cook or even shop for food.
