Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc. is committed to reducing the isolation experienced by so many elderly. Meals are delivered to seniors’ homes by volunteers.

The impact that Meals-on-Wheels has on the people it serves goes far beyond the wholesome meals it provides.

In addition to the meals, volunteers also provide a safety check, to ensure that senior clients are safe and well.
