“I love putting smiles on people’s faces and giving to my community”

- Christina Pyatt, Meals on Wheels West Volunteer of the Year

You can deliver every day, once a week or once a month or once a year. Meals on Wheels West offers flexible schedules that accommodate volunteer’s schedule. Whatever works for you!

Volunteers pick up meals at the Santa Monica location and deliver to about ten people in a neighborhood.

Keeping it local, more than 95% of our clients live in Santa Monica, Venice and Marina del Rey. Volunteers also deliver to Malibu and Pacific Palisades.

Volunteers help MOW West keep our costs down, allowing us to provide meals to our clients who receive meals free or at a reduced cost.

In the last fiscal year, over 850 people volunteered!

High school and college students can earn community service hours.

Businesses and service clubs can do a group Day of Service.

For the safety of our clients, volunteers must pass a short confidential background check.
