Our vibrant San Diego community can be characterized by its resilience, by its cultural diversity, by a strong U.S. military history and presence, by some of the top universities and research institutes in the world, and by an ever growing and dynamic senior population. People flock here to retire and spend the best years of their lives. As a third generation San Diegan, and like many of my friends and family members, I aspire to grow old and to do so with grace and dignity. And I aspire to do so in this beautiful community we call home.
It is an honor to be President and CEO of a San Diego institution that focuses on making the “golden years” of our cherished older adults a possibility for all. We address the basic needs of San Diego seniors by making a healthy meal and a warm smile part of everyone’s day. As this population grows to historic levels it is our duty as a society to care for those who paved our way, built our foundation, and from whom we can continue to learn. Meals on Wheels San Diego County looks to its community partners for support, guidance, and cutting edge programs so that we can bring the best services and care to over 2,000 seniors every day. We aim to serve more meals, better quality food, and wrap-around services that will allow San Diegans to age in place with grace and dignity. We welcome you to join us!
