As formerly homeless people are housed, MOW West delivers healthy meals and referrals to additional social services that help maintain stability, health & wellness.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fresh produce is delivered to clients thanks to generous donations from the Santa Monica Farmers Market and the Pacific Palisades Farmers Market.
