Meals on Wheels

Hot, Nutritious Meals Are A Real Life Saver!

Now serving all South San Mateo County from Belmont through East Palo Alto, plus patients discharged from Peninsula Hospital.

Every week, Peninsula Volunteers delivers over 1,300 hot, nutritious meals to primarily homebound seniors and adults with disabilities in San Mateo County who are unable to cook for themselves.

Purchase or lease a new Subaru between November 19 and January 2,
Subaru will donate $250 to a choice of charities that
benefit your community.

Meals on Wheels is one of the charities that can benefit from your purchase or lease of a new Subaru.  Together we can end senior hunger and isolation one meal at a time.


Thanks, as well, to all of our Dine-Out Raffle participants, as well, and congratulations to all of our Raffle winners, including:

Winners of the $500 restaurant gift certificates prizes: 

        Marylue Timpson and Walter Cook

For those who have been homebound for a long time, the delivery of a hot meal may be the only connection they have with the outside world that day. For others, momentarily sidelined for a few days or weeks, the arrival of a delicious meal can be a precious lifeline that allows them to get on their feet again. Meals on Wheels can be provided during a short-term convalescence or long-term disability.

We have answers to your questions:

How do I qualify and what if I don't?  
Who pays?
How to apply? 
What are the meals like?  
Can I get help with diet and other needs?
