Delivering More Than a Meal

MOW West’s core, heritage program that delivers a Los Angeles County dietitian approved hot lunch and light dinner daily to homebound seniors, the disabled, and the chronically ill of all ages. The Wellness Check monitors the health and wellness of MOW West clients.

Supporting Veterans on the Homefront

Cost-free meals are delivered to veterans of all ages. The daily friendly visit and Wellness Check reduces isolation of older veterans and helps recent veterans reintegrate into civilian life.

Heal Healthy at Home

Medically appropriate home-delivered meals are provided to recently discharged hospital and physical rehab facilities patients decreasing hospital readmissions and emergency room visits. 

Food and Shelter

As formerly homeless people are housed, MOW West delivers healthy meals and referrals to additional social services that help maintain stability, health & wellness.

Community Connections Phone Reassurance

Meals on Wheels West volunteers call MOW West clients twice a week to provide socialization, monitor their health & wellness and provide referrals for needs as they come up before they become more chronic.

Connecting Generations

An intergenerational volunteer initiative that encourages young people to give back to their community. Young volunteers are teamed with adult drivers to deliver meals to seniors and other Meals on Wheels West clients.

Keeping People and Pets Together

MOW West provides pet food and emergency veterinarian treatment to the pets of our low-income clients. The Center for Disease Control reports that having pets has measurable health benefits and decreases loneliness.

Emergency Preparedness

All clients are provided an emergency preparedness kit that includes three days of food and water, an emergency radio/flashlight, space blankets and survival information.
