Meals on Wheels……Nourishes, Comforts and Protects the most vulnerable of Long Beach’s citizens.
On a daily basis, Meals on Wheels of Long Beach makes a difference
Meals on Wheels of Long Beach provides a service of home delivered nutritionally balanced meals for individuals who are unable to shop and cook for themselves and who live alone. Founded in 1971, the program continues with the support of dedicated volunteers and generous donors. While the majority of our clients are elderly, meals are available to all Long Beach area residents, regardless of age.
Purpose of Program: To enable the chronically ill, seniors, veterans and disabled to remain independent & safe in their own homes for as long as possible.
Referrals are taken from: Doctors, hospital staff, social workers, ministers, clients, family or friends.
Service provided: Monday through Friday except major holidays.
Fee: $8.00 per day for two meals, a hot dinner, cold lunch, dessert and beverage. Eligible clients pay a fee if they are able, and if not, under certain conditions may be subsidized through ongoing sponsorship programs. Both meals are delivered by volunteers between 10:30 am and 12:30 PM.
MOWLB needs your help to continue to reach as many of the homebound hungry & vulnerable people in our community as possible.
You can help by making a donation or volunteering a little of your time at one of our Long Beach site locations.
