Food and Friendship Program

Delivering Smiles One Meal At A Time

Meals On Wheels Serves People of All Ages

No matter why a person is homebound – age, health, a disability, they face two major difficulties: poor nutrition and loneliness. Meals On Wheels West helps prevent both by bringing homebound people both food and friendship.

Every weekday, we deliver a hot lunch and cold dinner, the daily newspaper, fresh fruit and companionship to people who are homebound. This is often the only contact our clients have with the outside world.

We deliver more than just meals; we deliver smiles one meal at a time.


Open to Everyone Regardless of Age

Homebound residents of Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Topanga Canyon, Marina Del Rey and Venice who are unable to shop or cook for themselves are eligible. If you have any questions or concerns regarding eligibility, please call us at: 310-394-5133, extension 1.
